Roadside repairs: ten miles out on my Vagabond, I shifted into the big ring for a long downhill stretch, and the FD cable pulled loose! Some moron (me) didn't tighten the screw on that ARx FD well enough on installation a couple weeks ago. Rummaging through my handlebar bag (well stocked with spares, food & water) yielded no tools to tighten it back up. I was thinking about calling my daughter, whose car happened to have a bike rack on it that day, until I remembered I was still carrying her spare car key, which was thin enough to act as a screwdriver on this particular bolt.

We are surrounded by a sea of flowers here, many are natural and we have seen a lot more Monarchs working the flowerbeds.

The UP is some pretty remote territory and it provides for a nice environment for all kinds of critters.

Have yet to hear any of the wolves which have been sighted here along with cougars, bears, and abundant numbers of deer and wild turkey, just to name a few.

There is also a bald eagle that patrols the beach here, i hope to shoot him too.

Walking by? How about riding by on a vintage Look? Now you're talking




I'm sort of a nut for all things Mondrian, cf. the sliding doors I made for my laundry room; translucent polyethylene panels. They look great when backlit.

On Maui for 2 weeks and picked up the modern ride for the next week - I've never ridden carbon before so we'll see, let alone done the Shimano brifter thing. Wish they didn't have such a huge dork disc on it. First thing I noticed is the handlebar being definitely wider than my vintage rides so it remains to be seen how my repaired shoulder does with that angle.



Day 1 was yesterday and it was a bummer for my wife when she and several others got taken out by a wave as the winds suddenly kicked up. Slammed her into the ground and resulted in a grade 1 shoulder separation and hairline fracture to the clavicle at the sternum. She'll be laying low for a few days and is upset she can't do the zip lining anymore.

Sorry to hear that.

Hope she feels better very soon.


....and that dork disc stinks. Kinda like the bike though.

Somewhere around here I have an 'after' photo of just one leg. The Doc that stuck me back together told me to not call on him if I did it again .

Not my car, but I couldn't help stopping by for a pic.

Friends of my wife has an 18 yr old going to college. Very TALL !

They found a bike for him to use but 1 day before he leaves, inter me...

1973 Schwinn Varsity. Perfect size for him so I go to work.

Replace the wheels with alloy rims and SS spokes, new rubber and tubes I had in the parts bin. Alloy handle bar with levers and hoods..parts bin. Synthetic leather wrap from parts bin. Suntour stem shifters and rear Suntour DR.. Parts bin. Avocet leather saddle.. Parts bin. New cables.

Labor was free and parts also. I hope he rides it. Serious student by the way with a good head on his shoulders, just got his pilots license !

Dange thing was heavy before I started the work... And still is ! No hills where he is going.
