4 complete rebuilds since Christmas and finally it fits, makes sense (sort of) and I can survive it. The White Rabbit is done at last. Here it is in glorious color (white) and not so glorious color as I didn't have the auto white balance on for the non flash work.
Picture 2 shows the third brake lever for those who are aerobar cowards
Picture 3 shows the magic combiner that allows 2 levers to control the front brake
Picture 4 is a potential project name for a future Solveg bicycle. "The Flying Squirrel"
The elbow cups are about 8cm below the mean saddle level (bars are lower still........gasp) This is about as low as I can go at this time and age. We'll see after some considerable riding if lower is possible. A better level of fitness than so far achieved will be necessary but at this point I can ride and breath. Now the serious training begins.
