Nice haul!

Got my wheels from Ribblecycles today. Rear has a nice little bend that I have to true. To much hassle to send back.

Innard parts for my Sturmey Archer 5 sp IGH on my all weather commuter. First time I ordered from SJS in the UK and was very pleased. Hub broke as the weather cleared up so fair-weather bike did fine for my commute. Should have the hub fixed before the next rain.

Two new Gatorskins as the one on the rear of Geraldine is pretty close to the end of it's useful life.



Between 2500 and 3000 flat-free miles.

Then there is the item which I've purchased from a fellow traveler on this forum. It's been at least 3 weeks since he received the money order and has not responded to my inquiries.

Not really worth a picture, but I received two super-light 650B tubes from Compass Cycles today. So I was able to install the Pari-Moto on my freshly-built rear wheel. Now to finish gathering parts for the front.

A surprisingly nice rear bag from eBay. Zip out panniers and rain cover. Shoulder strap included if you need to take it with you. $18.99

Received a Tricolor rear derailleur from @Ex Pres today.

Boy, having a bike completely disassembled is a scary state, because you can't always foresee how it will come back together.

I got a nice big chrome Wald cruiser handlebar. I'm going to put it on my MTB so my chest clears the front baby seat. It's also gotten its kickstand back, and soon its slicks. Bye bye again, mountain bike, it was fun for the summer :-/

Received from @sloar. All except FD - braze on, not clamp - destined for my recently acquired Le Croco, which is a winter project.
