Managed to keep the rubber side down today so everything else was gravy.

This morning I rode in my latest project, my '86 Gazelle Champion Mondial. Eventually, I'd like to do a period-correct restoration, either first generation Chorus or Suntour Superbe Pro. In the meantime, I wanted to get it out on the road to get a feel for the ride so last night I threw on the fixed wheelset, post and saddle, handlebars and brake. Praise Eddy, is the ride nice! Now I know why people love that Reynolds 531c so much....
