Black Betty (“BB”)

This is Black Betty’s write up in a magazine:

Black Betty is a 2017 Trek Top Fuel 9.8. I had the rear hub replaced with a DT Swiss 240 (I think that’s the number) and it helped with better engagement. The saddle is different because I’m picky and apparently have to rotate between many saddles over time.

She’s fast. She’s ready. There are a million or more bikes called Black Betty. Nothing creative there, but the lyrics fit!

She really gets me high
You know that’s no lie
She’s so rock steady
And she’s always ready

I also like the name Black Betty because I call her “BB,” and those were my initials before saying “I do.” Beth Butler.
