I am training, rode in today! I gave him the bike last night but I can retrieve it for viewing, also got a new suntour Ultra 6 freewheel that I need to fit, he used the 19 quite a bit on the old one.

Everyone, I'd really recommend doing something like this, if you are like me the process is just as important as the result. He did offer me a ride on it, but not on the chain gang though!

Do you have a collection of colour-code bike-stands?.. :)

The lug-lining is so fine on this.. an object lesson in why it's called "lug-lining", and not "filling the shoreline with paint".. a lesson which I for one needed to learn. Thanks for showing.
