@3speedslow, Thanks. Frank seems good. I was treated fabulously and the repair looks perfect.

This week, I got a bike work stand on craigslist (not in the post). I had to get up early, ride the subway to Queens, pick it up, lug it on the Subway back through Manhattan to the Bronx, where I work. It was totally worth it. It lists for $270, and I paid only $90. I didn't even haggle with the seller. The stand needed a little lubrication. I am very happy.

That's my desk area in our loft apartment, so that idea hasn't occurred to me until about a week ago. I just might do it.

2 long-sleeve Bellwether jerseys, identical blue/white.
3 short-sleeve Louis Garneau jerseys, identical blue/white.
$62 shipped, total.

The seller simply liked to match his bike and avoid laundry, and got a new bike.
The price was right and I then could give my buddy a long-sleeve and short-sleeve jersey.
He steadfastly refuses to buy a jersey, so his entire collection is from me.
The "situation" is starting to grow legs.

No money's changes hands, but he owns a diner.

Gordini Men's Stash Lite Touch Mitts. They are very thin, and it's hard to believe they are warm enough. I can pick up a quarter from the ground while wearing them. They also allow me to use a smart phone with the mittens on. I can't recommend them highly enough. I got size XL so I could fit gloves under them for extra-cold days.

A very exciting purchase is waiting for me at the Post Office. It's a new seat post for my Schwinn Co-Ed. The first one was too short. The second, longer one, is bent. The new one in the post office is assumed not to be bent and will be reinforced with a piece of steel rebar so as not to bend in future. I'm a big boy and I like to ride on roads and trails. That's why he longer seat posts bend and need reinforcement.

Not in the mail, but Ellen snagged this gas pipe Turin at an estate sale this morning for $50. (I will work on her photography technique, so she knows to snap the drive side. ) It's got Simplex derailleurs, probably a Simplex crank, an Ideale saddle, and looks like MAFAC brakes. Wheels might be keepers, and unless the saddle is toast, I will find a use for it. Beyond that, I imagine it will be a part out. It looks way too small for either of us, maybe 50cm?

A "base layer" jersey liner from the Repack Clothing Company in the UK. Company is named after, well look at the screen name. They always send me the new products. I never know when they are coming, they just arrive.

A new Rollfast t-shirt from eBay, XXL, maybe a smidge on the large side but COMFY. It stands to reason that I really should have something like that.

A nearly new Athena 11 speed groupset. Going on my BMC Monstercross project.

I was going to go all Shimano on this project, but this was too nice to pass up. Looks like the frames won't ship now till March, which is fine. Won't be riding that here anyway till April.

BTW The fellow I bought it from included a 1986 copy of Winning magazine. It has an interesting article about Bernard Hinault!

Not to get off topic, but I've been wearing base layers more and more, even started in warmer weather last summer. What's your take on them? I still see them on clearance in lots of places (like Riddell sleeveless at Walmart) and have started picking them up. Last week, I ventured into one of those "outlet" malls (not fake goods, just fake sale prices) and went into an Under Armour outlet. I avoided temptation for the most part, but like the one top I picked up.

This frame was delivered yesterday but I am not there to see it so I asked my wife to open the box. She said it's a pretty blue. I guess my dog approves. Now I need a group to hang on it, something modern and silver.

Dang, that thing looks like it spent a century or so on the gate at Ryoan-ji. Then they took it off, and mailed it to you for your bike.
