“Red Zinger” – It lulls me to speed –
The bike sings to me. Actually, it zings... it’s a resonance with the pavement and drivetrain,
so we zing happily down the road. Carbon frames mute the song, but this one is alive with it.
It’s a siren’s song — the faster we go, the more it zings, and the faster I want to go.
Name taken from Mo Siegel’s iconic tea, and the classic bicycle races of the late 1970s.
Aquired 2014.06.21 from Chad Corbin. Here it is all ready for our commute home from work.
