She Rides Again!

So about 10 years ago I built Heather a Surly Crosscheck for Christmas. A year or so ago I had her frame retrofitted with S&S couplers when I built a Traveler's Check for myself so that we can travel with our bikes.

We shipped off to Jamaica for our maiden voyage of our S&S equipped bicycles. And then we got evacuated from our hotel because hurricane Paloma was kicking some major ass!

Needless to say her sparkly red bike took quite a beating while being pummeled by 30-40 foot waves. Salt water and bicycles are not a good combination. So after procrastinating about a year on rebuilding her bike (sorry babe) SHE RIDES AGAIN! Sparkly red and pretty in pink. Mistakes were made and lessons learned.
