A Man & His Bikes-the Singlespeed
This is the first mountain bike I ever owned, a Diamond Back Ascent. I bought it in 1993, & thus my love affair with cycling began. I rode this, complete with knobbies, on 70 mile road rides. I rode it in Winter Park, on the MOPAC for miles & miles. I eventually upgraded some of the components & then decided to convert it to a one speed, complete with WTB dirt drops, which required some getting used to. I now use this bike as my foul weather commuter.
