Project Hardrock SS is no longer...

My wife and I just moved a few months ago from Tulsa to Washington DC. Well, the Hardrock was in pretty bad shape so I took everything part and was going to try again after the move. Just have the movers take the frame. Should be easy enough, right? Well, it's lost (but I think stolen).

That was my first bike (first real bike) ever. I miss it more than I ever thought possible. I even showered naked with it! I should probably explain that. In college, when my bike would get muddy, I would take it into the shower. It was the easiest way, then after washing the bike I would wash myself. Really, nothing weird going on here.

Look, I know it is the lowest model Specialized you can buy, and it wasn't even in the best of conditions, but it was my first bike. It's what made me fall in love with mountain biking. And it was going to be a kick a trick commuter. But now it's nothing more than a memory...

Let's have a moment of silence.

Maybe the Specialized Angel can bring my Suzy back to me (Suzy is what I named my bike).

A sad day...

Ok, when I got to work, I told my coworker how much I loved his bike.  He told me he talked to his buddy, Nomco, and said he's out of IRO Mark V's.  Apparently he is selling more than Tony at IRO is and is getting the run around, but for me to come to his shop and see what he's gots.


What about my all black stealth bomber?  Is it a lost dream?  I like the orange Angus he has but it's not drilled for brakes and I'm not a fixie nut [yet].

Well, I'll let you know what I find.

Test Ride

I took my coworkers Iro out for a test ride this evening. It rides great, although I need a longer seatpost. I took it to my friend Bob's house to talk about mountain biking then I had to run over my other buddies house, Josh to talk about wedding plans for our friend Matt. Wow, a lot of friends in that paragraph!

Anyway it was great. As I was leaving Bob's house, I called Matt & Josh and told them I was riding my bike and asked how long they thought it would take. They estimated over 45 minutes and I thought it sounded right but I would try my best.

Well, I got there in 22 minutes. One gear. Iro is right; one gear is really all you need. I got some serious speed and there were no hills that I had to stop on. I just stood up and mashed.

So, here is a map from Google Maps. It's just a screen cap.
