    I should have taken a picture. The packing job was a masterpiece of Tetris-like packing. The Ford Grand Cmax has 3 rows of seating and is a bit longer than the version available in the US. We each...

    Well it took awhile, but I finally got it together and rode it for the first time today. All Mavic from a mid 80's PX10 donor, but I left the quill pedals off for now, and I am using a set of wheels...
