Raleigh M30.......1999 model with a sq. tapered BB that was the rebuildable type which I opted this time for a sealed sq. taper BB. It also helps to have Zinn's book for reference!

Congrats, man. Mechanic stuff comes more easily with time and experience, of course potentially aided by having the sort of mind that grasps forces and 3-D visualization well. It is rewarding whatever the case.

Hey, I was just out in your neck of the woods. Sort of. Backpacking in Shining Rock Wilderness of Pisgah National Forest, SW of Asheville off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Check out this moonrise over the ridges from our last night out:

That is nice Tim..................look me up if you ever come back my way. We can do a ride. BTW- are you doing the pre-CNC ride in April? I think I will try if I can get my co-worker to cover my on-call that weekend.

The moon over the mountains always gets better the more you see it. I have a great picture of a moon shot over the Biltmore House that a friend took that is unreal!
