Frameset purchased June 2021 Crow's Feet Commons bike shop, built from the ground up due to supply chain issues.

Fork & rear shock recently serviced. Brakes bled at the same time. Cable, housing, chain, and cassette recently replaced. There are a few beauty marks from being ridden, but nothing through the paint.

Ridden & Rated: 8 Lightweight Jackets for Springtime Adventures
We have these tall things called mountains in the PNW. They don't melt out until July most years. So yes, I carry a jacket in the summer, and really anytime I am riding more than an hour from home.

Gear Guide: 10 Summer Riding Kits for Women
@gerhards: I switch up the brands every year. Last summers gear guide included at least two brands that carry a larger size range (above XL), and I put together the XL/ Plus Size gear review last fall. You are correct that most the major brands don’t have inclusive sizing, but I’m still tasked with reviewing their products.
