Zach's Mountain Bike
Several weeks ago I posted some photos of Zach and me building him a mountain bike. I'd planned to build the bike over the course of the summer, and in the process, teach Zach a bit about bikes, tools, and patience. In the end, then, I'd hoped he'd still be interested, and we'd do some riding together.
We both learned some things along the way. Zach probably learned some of the things I'd hoped to teach. (Some of them he no doubt knew already.) and I learned a bit about patience myself.
Finally we got everything put together. I built a roof rack for my car, we put the bikes on top, and off we went to some trails near Guincho. The bike worked great and we both had a fantastic time.
