Im back

I started riding last October I think. then my bike decided it was gonna call it quits.

I kept being lazy and postponing getting everything that I needed.

Well I finally have everything I need and it is all together except for pedals and cables

Here is what she looks like now


how it started


I cant wait to get riding again

Well I actually only replaced the Brake levers, wheels, freewheel, and bar tape. Everything else was cleaned and polished.

Looks like you did some painting as well, did you have the frame stripped and painted, or did you do that yourself, looks good either way!

That is a nice looking bike. I seem to have a new found affinity for black bikes though.
