    Let's see that picture again at the end of the winter. Any guesses how much of that rosy red lettering will be left?

    That is... if the chainstays don't rust off the bb shell first

    Hey while we're on the subject, who drills their BB shell for drainage, and how big of a hole do you make? Knowing almost nothing about what I was doing, I put a 1/8" hole in my shell and it seems to be doing the trick so far.

    Jeez. I only ride on new phil hubs. Riding a used one is decidedly declassé. Kind of like dipping your cheese in your wine.

    It is going to be painted before I ride it everyone. I have to mod it first. But, was just checking spindle length.
