over to T100 on lower 220 and back. very nice day!
The place of childhood dreams. King Norman’s. This price tag, from like 1974, was on a box of 8″ H.O. scale track that my brother Stuart dropped off for Tegan – to be given in a few years. Awesome. 29 cents.
Karen knows how to bake a pie.
This was the 3rd year in a row for the Flight of the Pigs. A few damages. A really nice day on the bike. A bit faster this year, less waiting. The 1×9 set up on the bike really made it nice.
For a while, I have been wondering what the fixed gear would ride like with the On-One Midge bar.
Quite a difference. More comfy and more usable area for differnet positions. I think the only problem is the shortness of the drop – my hand wants to use more area than the bar offers. While I was at it, I put on some older first-year Shimano 105 Dual Pivot calipers on:
Those brakes are many times more powerful than the side pulls that were on it before. Almost to much power – easy to lock the rear wheel up – kind of a useless thing on a fixed gear. The front brake is just as powerful and improves the off-road ability of the bike.
I have had this tool for an unknown amount of treasured time. If it could talk….
On a side note: I have feared for many years that SHOES for my child would really bother me. On Monday, this FIFTY DOLLAR pair of shoes confirmed it for me. This is every six months for who knows how long?
It was a while in the making. Karen did most of the labor. She seems to be very skilled in application of design to make it a reality. I can’t wait to test it out.
