It’s been just over a year since The Mule showed up in Daejeon, making my commute to work a lot more enjoyable. Several thousand kilometers later (I’m guessing between 3 and 4 somewhere), two multi-day bike trips, seven metric century + days, and many day trips out and back, this bike has served me well.
Groceries, books, and anything else that I’ve strapped to the rack or shoved in the panniers have been carried nearly effortlessly by this wonderful bike. I shot through the first headset pretty quick, but the King that I put on it has served me without even a whimper, even when I had it too loose for a day and a half of cycling in Japan.
It’s been a good year, Mule. Thanks for the ride. I look forward to a long, healthy relationship.
