<sigh> building my bike is taking a long time.
Mostly it's the painting that's been a PITA. Painted the fork, primed the frame, rain, no time to paint, finally got the frame painted (kinda a crappy job, but who cares it's a beater project), try to install the headset, so much for the paint job on the fork, more rain, more trouble finding time, finally the fork is 2/3 of the way painted again (just need to clearcoat it)...
And I still need to order the wheelset and BB/cranks/gears... I think I'll finally be able to do that this week at least. But I'll be pretty surprised if I have it together in time to ride it as soon as the doctor says I can ride again (2.5 weeks to go).
