    I just decided about 2 minutes ago that I'm going to rebuild my gravity swift this winter since all I really need for it is a fork and a wheelset. It'll be nice to have 2 bikes I think.

    Will give all my bikes a good cleaning/maintenance PLUS will build two new ..

    Rebuild of a '93 Cannondale M series frame, sandblast, powder coat, build up with XTR. Second project is a rust-free 1973 Motobecane steel frame which will be built up with a Campa Chorus. Guess I will post some pictures when they're finished.

    The family is growing
    Think of bicycles as rideable art that can just about save the world. Imagine, they can even have cupholders...

    With a new saddle on the way, my IRO is finished unless I decide to buy a new seat post. My Peugeot needs a set of fenders and a bell and that's done. I might work on my vintage Schwinn cruiser, or maybe I'll find another old mountain bike to dink around with. Haven't decided yet.

    My Fiori road bike build.


    BB + cranks are on now. Wheels are being built currently. I have bars and shifters ready to go, just waiting on stem. Just bought my rear derailleur.

    That is a gorgeous paint job. Where'd you manage to find that beauty?

    Need to take 10 minutes and put my studded tires on... and do a quick 5 minute bearing/bolt check before going out into the winter wonderland.

    You can in the rear if you move the wheel all the way to the back in the dropouts. However, it will hit the bottom of the fork crown in the front. You could probably safely grind away enough material on the fork to make one fit, since the steerer tube extends well below the welds to the fork legs in the unicrown.

    I'll probably work on my tourer this winter, some much needed maintenance:

    - Install new brake cables, check shifter cables
    - Learn to service hubs, something I've never done before but need to learn
    - Check rims for wear
    - Thorough cleaning all over
    - Replace any rusted bolts

    Then it will be ready to hit the road for some major touring next spring and summer.

    Awesome find! That'd look real sharp with a set of whitewalls.

    Getting rollers and making myself ride through the winter. I don't have enough money to do any winter builds. Maybe come summer I'll build up a tubular wheelset for the track. I talked to a guy from the velodrome in Burnaby and he said my bike would be fine if I take off the brake and put some drops on it.
