Singlespeed, eh? Are you doing your best to discourage her? Like the wheels though. And the rear brake.

Nice set of Rolf wheels 8)

Tinkered all afternoon, but come to think of it never got much done.

Retro road got a campag bb and drop out adjusters installed and some fettling to establish stem choice.

Modern road got a nice road back wheel back from lbs :lol: ready for some miles tomorrow.

Ss got pulled out, but never received new chain and sprocket

I'm on a mission to get every one of my bikes fully operational at the same time - don't think I've ever managed that before. Today it was the turn of the Cannondale, so it got a new (old) XTR rear mech and shifter. It's taken some abuse in its life and it's starting to show - a little bit of play in the shock bushing will need some attention soonish and one or two other wee bits are just about ready to be replaced, but it's rideable as is.

So that gives me...
Tandem - done
Sunn hardtail - done
Sunn xchox - done
Kona Scab - done
Gemini - mostly done
Raleigh - done
Rumble - done
Norco - needs some work on the brakes.
Club Roost - done
Sunn roadie - done
Giant roadie - in bits, needs rebuilt
...not as much work as I thought!

Liking that Mikee, if your good lady decides cycling isn't for her I reckon you could offload the frame in my direction for mK's next bike.

I'm, think of singlespeed for my half as well. She don't like to bother with gear change.
