This little piggy went to the market ...

I am selling the Stinson! It's been a great commuter but it's just too small for me. I found this out a couple of weeks ago when I rode the Death Fork and what a difference that frame was. The Stinson is a 53 cm frame vs 61 cm frame on the Death Fork.

The proceeds from this sale will go into the Death Fork. I need to get a White Industries bottom bracket and a new wheel set using annodized orange hoops and matching annodized orange hubs that I bought last year. I think I am going to look for a 180 mm single speed crankset and gear down to 52:14.  Riding that bike was insane - it was so fast and I didn't have the chance to really open it up.

The Stinson is a great bike and I will be sadden when she leaves but space is at a premium right now and I really don't have a need for 3 fixed gear bikes at the moment. Especially after adding the Tandem to the stable.

I wish it was a tad smaller frame.

You should give it a try - who knows, it might fit perfectly.
