Oops, I've done it again ...

My plans for this year was to finish some projects before I could start a new project ... And don't spend too much money on the bikes, because there is an expansion in the family, so I'll need it for the baby...

But I could not leave this one standing there...

Thanks, It doesn't have much work on it. I've picked it up at a bikeshop so it's allready cleaned and ready to use (and yes.... it was on MP...).

To make it original again, it needs an XT rear derailleur and I've to get some specialized tyres.... (but that's a common problem for most of my specialized bikes).

Cheers,
Will

Today I worked on the bike. I wanted to put my (purchased from other forum members) new tires on it.

When I was almost finished, I discovered that the fork was deflated :cry: . No problem! Because I want to ride the bike tomorrow, I'm going to replace the fork for another.... 8)

Unfortunately, the headset is completely stuck... Finally, the fork came out of the bike, but the headset didn't survive..... :cry: So, tomorrow I'm going to ride a different bike. Hopefully the LBS is able to fix the problem next week...

Cheers,
Will
