Betty Foy in Gorgeous Black

Clad in evening-gown black, the Betty Foy was a joy.


I didn't really know that I needed one of these, but after riding it... well, you know. The black finish was gorgeous, and I really liked the gearing setup, with an XD2 with guard affixed on the outermost side, like a Quickbeam. But, then the small ring was a 24T (large was 40T), which when paired with the wide range gearing in back (34?) let you easily go from walking speed to fast-as-ya-need-to-go. Really a slick setup.


And, let's get this out of the way too. If you were around in the day, this earworm probably rattled around your brain at some point in the last minute or so. But, Leadbelly did it before them, and James "Ironhead" Baker recorded the original.
