I haven't worked with Rock the Bike, no! They sound awesome. Do you know
anybody specific I should reach out to? :)
Also, hey everybody, look, Robin has already built her own set from the
tutorial! They're gorgeous! Yours will be too!
I may get there just in the nick of time, as I'm attempting to scrounge a
mountain bike for this weekend. See you there!
