New Bling for the Bishop Feb 11, 2013

IMG_7230

Last summer, Chris King gave me one of their soon-to-be-reissued purple NoThreadSets and all I could think was “this will be perfect on the Bishop”. For whatever reason, it sat on my desk, staring me down until the other day when I finally broke out my headset tools and installed it. This, along with the new Tune Skewers I ordered from Fairwheel Bikes (hey, no one could order them locally) brought just the right amount of purple to the already classy Bishop road.

See a few more shots below.

    Nice bit o’Poiple, Mister!
    Looks like the setup dorks have taken Monday off – I can offer my services if you like though?
