The dream is over. My beloved gangstaLean(tm) is no more.
This was a project bike that took me almost a year to build, a concept that not many believed would even work, a custom hybrid road/BMX mash machine that served me as well as any bike could. I rode this thing probably 300 miles over the course of it’s life, and I could do damn near anything on it. It was light, strong, versatile, and it HAULED FUCKING ASS.
But alas, my new apartment doesn’t have room for all my bikes, and now that I’m riding my converted Schwinn fixie around everywhere, I needed to commit and break down the Lean(tm). It is now in all of it’s individual pieces, stored in my window seat storage, by the little shop in the northeast corner of my apartment.
The Lean(tm) will always LIVEWRONG, though.
