    Last year, the racing team at Independent Fabrication sold raffle tickets to raise money for the team. The winner won a steel frame. I won.

    I had been saving up for a new bike, but with things the way they are, my plans to get it on my 50th birthday were postponed to maybe my 55th, if that!

    Well, I was at a IF Ride/Demo/Presentation meeting at Grace Bicycles in Holliston where I learned of the raffle, so I bought a ticket on line that night.

    I paid a little extra to upgrade the Crown Jewel to an SE, and then worked with Grace Bicycles to design the rest.

    I decided on bright yellow with green logos in part because it looks great and is visible on roads, but also because it’s reflective of their company colors and I hope it will bring them business as people see it and ask about it.

    I was on a ride today and I guy on a nice Trek pulled along side. He had never heard of the brand but was curious about the bright color. I don’t know if he was trying to keep up or not (I think we all try!) but when we came to the hill, I left him behind.

    Yeah, I could have stayed with him for a while longer, but the bike wanted to fly.

    Congratulations John! You beat me as I had purchased a ticket for that raffle also.

    By the way…your homeowners should cover your bike. My insurance agent is a good friend, and I just asked him that same question a few months ago. We have riders for some of my wife’s jewelry, but he assured me my bike would be covered. Of course, I tell you that w/o any knowledge of the specifics of your company or policy.

    Anyway…congratulations and enjoy your new Crown Jewel! Great bike, made by some great people.
