clean lines

full suspension of disbelief heading in the opposite direction of a simple elegant solution with 20 years worth of hindsight to arm-chair-quarterback-monday-morning-critique the design and smile at this   1996  Schwinn  s [9 six]   even reading the name is kind of all over the place fittingly the vectors scalars and tensors are heading every which way on this bike  this bike that I pulled from the donation dumpster yesterday

I'll take the rear derailleur and the cranks and transplant them to another bike and maybe the wheels if the rims aren't shot and maybe the big-click beefy grip shifts because they're Shimano compatible and they'll hold up 20 more years          you can have the rest

in 1996 I bought a 1996 Rock Hopper with front suspension and immediately put skinny slick tires on it and tried to lock-out the fork with harder elastomers. 20 years later I ask "why the fuck did I buy a mountain bike?" and "why the fuck did I pay full retail for a Rock Hopper?"   it seemed like a good idea at the time

All squares are rectangles, not all rectangles are squares and rhombus is neither of either.
