So, heres the story. I send my fixie into the shop for paint a few weeks ago.....get it back and it looks amazing, the same day my cranks arrive from ebay and I throw it all together. All except for a chainring, between 5 bike shops there isnt one 52t 130BCD 5 bolt ring in the city. So on monday I ordered one from my lbs, my bb came back from getting chased at the machine shop on tuesday, so its all together except for one chainring. On thursday I take a spill playing frisbee and break my tibia at my ankle. How's that for ****ty luck?
So the end result is one completely built fix that i wont be able to ride for at least 6 weeks. So tomorrow when I go to get my walking cast Im bringing an spd cleat and seeing if they'll put it in the bottom.
Thank god for bikeforums or else my couch ridden days would be much more boring.
