I'm also fine tuning bikes I purchased or put-together in 2012.
1978 Trek: Rebuilt wheels with new spokes and Sun CR18 rims. I added a 7 speed Suntour Ultra Freewheel. The chainstays are being ovalized to provide 4mm more tire clearance.
2011 Origin 8 CX700: 700x50 Schwalbe Marathon Supreme tires & Planet Bike 29er fenders (it all fits :-) )
I've been dreaming of a custom sports/touring frame, but that won't happen this year.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
