It wasn't easy but made the decision to retire a friend that has carried me through thick and thin. Nationals, Worlds, and lots of podiums along the way. We celebrated together, cried together, and bled together.
She was made for me when I weighed in at a hair under 150. Now that I'm carrying an extra 25 the extra load is a burden on her triple butted frame. It's the only frame that has lasted me over one season.
It's been a good ride. Seven years to be exact!
Here are some parting shots.
