Jumped the gun on Valentine’s Day

On February 14th it’s going to be Valentine’s Day. This is the “holiday” that can either get you in trouble or make you look like a hero. Hopefully you’ve planned ahead and got your wife/girl friend something special. As I mentioned in a previous article, I decided to go with a bicycle themed gift for Lady P. Scheck it out! If you couldn’t already tell, it’s the Airborne Hobgoblin.

If you’re wondering, no I didn’t get this bike for free. I actually purchased it for Lady P. This was actually the first time I bought a bike online without trying it. But through the encouragement of fellow team mate, Jerry Hazard who happens to own 2 of these Hobgoblins, I ended up ordering it directly from Airborne.
It’s hard to tell from these photos, but the frame is this really pretty deep pearl navy color. I love how the logo is HUGE on the downtube.

I made a couple of changes for Lady P. I started with a new carbon bar courtesy of team rider Corey Pond as well as a new Sunline V-One stem. I also swapped out the saddle with a Serfas Carma Saddle and replaced the seat collar clamp with a quick release version because I know Lady P likes to lower her seat before tackling technical stuff.

Here’s what’s surprising about the Hobgoblin, the weight. Lady P’s bike is a 15″ frame and it came in with no pedals at 27.5lbs.

Unfortunately the trails are wet due to a quick winter storm, otherwise LadyP and I would be out riding and testing this bike out.

    Thanks for setting the bar incredibly high for the rest of us. Now I’ll be sleeping on the sofa cause RL got his wife a bike and I got my wife some dishwashing gloves. Thanks Topper.
