Last Week

Last week the 17T cog of my double freewheel broke:

Sooooo I put gears on!

And here's a couple misc pics from around the shop:

A very hairy bike.  Feel free to guess what kind of hair it is!

Blue is Back

Dedicated MTB now, rather than sharing 2 jobs on the stumpjumper. Felt a quite strange on the first couple rides since I was coming off of a MTB from 1987, but it all came back to me. This thing climbs really well.

Another Picture Post

For the past few months I have had very little "rack n roll-esque" content.  Sorry 'bout that.  There was a point where there was a glimmer of hope that I would have a workshop set up, but not anymore.  All fabricating has come to a halt, so I suppose I shall continue to post photos of what I find interesting since I cannot bear to let this blog go stagnant after a few years of posting.
