your time frame is correct, but the location is off.

Welcome, Artichoke. Going gas-less is liberating. Hope to see you on a ride sometime soon.

Hello Artichoke! Is that Highway 24 down below just before the tunnel?

I had to do some digging, but I found some pictures I took right after I built it up. It has temporary pedals, a ridiculous stem, and various other inaccuracies, but here you go:

Slowly.

I can mount, dismount and ride around fine as long as I have a hand on a wall. But I don't dare let go for more than a second.

Haven't had that much time to practice, between travel, being swamped with work, and a twisted knee (seems to be all better now).

Ouch! How did you manage to do that?

So, when are we going to see you on youtube displaying your mad skills on that unicycle.?

Latest disposition of my beloved Redline Cyclocross bike:



I thought the frame was salvageable but nay. I had the frame alignment checked and it was bent to the left by 1/4". Since the rear drop outs were in perfect alignment, I'd guess the front triangle is bent. Forks were definitely bent and wheels are not fixable. The hubs seem OK so I'm having them rebuilt with DT Swiss R1.2 rims. Now to find a suitable replacement cross bike by autumn.

I do have the other parts that were salvageable too... 105 STI shifters, stem, black 105 cranks, Dura Ace Octalink BB, XTR med-cage RD, LX cantis, American Classic seatpost, etc.

I was doing maintenance on my boyfriend's motorcycle and stupidly managed to drop it on myself, sandwiching myself between his bike and my bike (which fortunately didn't fall over). For a minute I thought I had broken my leg.

:cringe: You dropped a motorcycle on yourself?!

And yet you are back on your Orbea. You truly are incredible.

So what was it like to be an "miss incredible/duc sandwich"?
Glad you came out relatively OK.

Painful. And confining.

Hopefully it was one of those "once in a lifetime" experiences.

Good thing you're into bikes instead of cars... otherwise we'd be visiting you in the hospital wearing Henry's plastic vest! Doh!

Glad you are doing okay though!

Here's my Rivendell frame which I got back today from the painter. It had developed a crack in the joint between the seatpost & one of the seat stays which had to be re-brazed, so it was a good opportunity for a bit of other minor work on hte frame & a new paint job. I stayed with the original color, it's really nice.

It's now being built up at Robinson Wheelworks.

Rick at D&D did a fabulous paint job, the picture doesn't do it justice. I'll try to get better photos when it's built up.



I'm so psyched!
