    N+1 Ruby is complete

    Here is Ruby - similar to the 20" Raleigh Rodeo I had in my teens. With a professional ruby paint job done by the auto shop she cost double. I am disappointed because she should have shone in the sun - you can see some of the effect but it's very muted. As a casual nostalgic ride she brings something different to the stable. Despite putting money out on good cabling, pads, and Grand Cru cantilevers her braking is poor. Fortunately it will do fine at the speeds I'll ride.

    Nice job on the build. When I was in grade school I wanted a 20" stingray like my friends. One of my big brothers bought me a 26" bike that looked a lot like that one except it was fire engine red. When I first saw it I was disappointed, but after a few rides to town at 11 miles each way I loved it.
