Pics from Mike with comments from Walt

Mike rode the White rim and sent over a couple of pictures:

Not wearing your Waltworks Jersey, Mike? For shame!
Panorama shots used to be a pain before smartphones. Now nobody is impressed, Mike.

Mike also related the story of running into another rider on a frame built by the legendary Don McClung (who, sadly, I have never met) who complimented him on his “sweet Waltworks”. Which, to me, is sort of like someone with a Stradivarius complimenting me on my homemade banjo or something.

I love that about custom bikes and custom bike owners – there is plenty of bike snobbery but also a game-respect-game aspect that means that basically everyone who builds or owns one is psyched to see another one, no matter who made it.
