    Just some bike pic updates...




    I got some wooden mudguards.


    The Swift got 451 wheels and slightly shorthened bullhorns. 16 spokes fr, 21 sp rear.


    Connie's Moulton got the Brooks saddle and some matching grips. Barends are still on their way. Light period crankset. Carbon bits here and there. 16 spokes fr & r.

    Connie's bike is looking GOOD!!! .. I've always liked the Continentals, how's she like them? Did the Reach get banished to the back part of the shed?

    No Bruce......... I think he's giving it to Stevegor as a "Get well' present.

    Well here's the thing... she has only done TWO rides on the Moulton... the weather is very wet for us this season and she does not want to get dirt on it. So the Reach has seen weekly duty while her Moulton now has substantial dust on it. Plus the conversion is not quite done yet. Needs a front derailer and shifter.

    The wood mudguards would complement the honey colored Brooks saddle and grips on Connie's Moulton too...

    Yep that's what the chap at Woodys said as well... I mentioned this to Connie, and she said,

    "But that would make it heavier!"

    My dearest best half has not only turned into a style police, but a weight weenie to boot!! She bought sunglasses with matching red color to the bike frame, and rejected a red Cateye speedo because the red is a different shade!!!

    I might sneak the guards onto her bike so she can have a look.

    I must say, I am giving that bike the utmost teatment:
    * It got the EC70 carbon bar and matching seatpost from my Moulton,
    * it got the uber-light front wheel that used to be on the Swift,
    * I built her a new rear wheel with a very light Velocity Aerohead rim (which is now available in 406mm) and Capreo hub ("I need a higher top gear, dearie")
    * I bought a truly light weight weenie crankset (405g according Weight Weenies!!)

    etcetera.

    It took me a while to spot the rear brake on the Swift! How is the cable routed and how is the cable that runs under the main frame tube held there?

    Oh I love Connie's red Moulton. That Brooks saddle is not too shabby either.

    I can't believe how thin that saddle is on the Swift.
