East Hill: No, just tell her that you thought she was thrilled that you were in agreement with her. Did she not agree that you could get a 'new' bike for your effort?
I was giddy when I opened the package and pulled that BB out. It's catalog picture didn't do it justice.
I do love it here near the Mississippi.
That fork crown is very light. Its a 7 degree rake for straight blades. I was worried about bending the blades but I've picked up some good pointers on bending lately and may order another crown to build up a traditionally raked fork.
I ordered from Nova Cycles and from Joe Brinheli. I recommend them both.
The lugs have nice tight tolerances, a good thing for those brazing with silver.
And I plan on making a silver and enamel headbadge to cap off this project.
Disco, No. I didn't melt down the cans and cast the parts ( interesting concept, though I once grew my own BLT sandwich from scratch)
