Pretty quiet weekend for me, lunch out with the family yesterday then afternoon playing with the wee man out in the yard as the weather was glorious up here. Also cabled up the Long Haul trucker and then put the gaurds and rack on after he was in bed. Heather was at work today and it was raining until mid afternoon so we couldn't mount his seat and go for a ride.
I took it out for a ride this evening and it was brilliant!
Even though I have had this for eighteen months, having bought it when I sold the Koga world traveller back in October 2011 and have slowly got the stuff together to build. Everything has been here for a while but not much point over the winter, it has been a long slow build but various things got in the way such as redundancy, Pugs build, which again was not a quick build. Everything to a budget but waited until I could build as I wanted to.
The build was also sped along as my van blew a coolant pipe and destroyed a head gasket last Monday, so this is now my daily driver. I did ride the Merckx to work last week and it was its usual excellent self but its a racer not a commuter and this with the more upright relaxed position should be a more relaxed ride.
Oh and the seat is temporary for this week until I get another. This one is the one for ZZ.
Thought I'd share
Carlsberg dont build Singlespeeds but if they did.......they would probably look just like mine.
I've spent half my life on bikes.........the other half I wasted
