of course, a boneshaker pennyfarthing would be good as well.

So many possibilities.

Weekend, Updated.

 

On bikes Saturday.  Wanted to ride, but knee was toast.  The rest of the house (except Sprocket, Campy and Shimano) went to play with tigers.  Tuned up my fixed gear and the Surly.  They are all shiny and functional.  Recabled the brakes on the Surly for use with Crosstops.  Much better on the singletrak.

 

I wish they made a larger clamp diameter to fit on the OS bars.

Also moved rear wheel back 5/8″ on the dropout.  Feels more stable and takes little square edges better.  Less thunk, more chunk.  The Republican and the Russian came over to work as well.  Good times.  Gave a hat back to the neighbor in exchange for other things.

 

This is really good!

Sunday the Family went down to Tempe for free t-shirts and bagels.  

 

this bike is actually in a tree down in an old town Tempe neighborhood.

NO COFFEE?  WTF?  I was not right all day.  Seems budget cuts in Tempe kept it from being as nice as previous years.  Traffic back to home was just like last year!  Seems we forget things that are painful.  SOMA Triathalon.  Should have stopped in for coffee.  Next year we will just ride our bikes down.

Shaw Butte

We did not intend to climb it.  It was more of a circumference that we were looking for.  Ended up near the top.  Good October Moon.
