Thanks for being such a loyal owner! Nice to see she still looks good at age 30.

Your daughter is very cute, glad to see she is wearing a helmet. Still see lots of kids riding without around here. They have no idea.

All the best

Scott, more pictures to follow of the BB, but when I had it done, the shop described it as the solution for my never ending battle with the cranks shifting. I never could get the lockrings right. Again, fuzzy memories. It is indeed a Mavic. I didn't think it was stop gap/repair but an upgrade in quality??

A small world for me with FC. In the early 2000s I opened a brewery in Leadville, Colorado. Earl Walker Jr an early 90s FC team rider moved to Leadville from Atlanta. A bunch of his friends and Independent Fab associates raced the Leadville 100. Earl's wife became our brewer. Total happenstance with the FC connection.

How many 16 year olds bought there own FC? I remember the yellow order form and I think I paid $1150 in cash to the bike shop owner that I worked at part time.

Here is the Mavic headset that went in when I had the BB done.
