& so it begins... by Troy Martin

And So It Begins!

I still kinda chuckle. I spent a couple hundred on old yeller about 15 years ago. It was probably 20 years old then. A yellow Pinarello race bike. The first over 12 speed I’d ever owned. It’s so old that it doesn’t have any other name. That I know of. I’ve tried to find one.

It had these funny pedals so I went to the bike store to make them work. They wanted half the cost of the bike for shoes! So I bought the least expensive ones that I could find. Only last year did I learn that they were for mountain bikes. Lol


I used it for commuting. A great bike. Rode it for a few summers. Got hit by a van & I strangely didn’t ride it as much after that.
