BTW, my GS doesn't strictly need a long cage derailleur, with its fairly narrow gearing, but I couldn't resist the Raleigh branded Suntour VX GT on the 'bay for 15 bones shipped. Soon the GS will be sporting a 13-28 cogset along with the GS derailleur, to make better use of the available chain wrap.

No pics. I'm so AR/OCD I opened them, separated into zip-loc bags, and put them back in the designated box.

1-One really nice set of Suntour GPX brake calipers, all pieces intact and clean.
2-One Suntour GPX RD
3-One Suntour GPX FD 28.6 clamp
4-One set Suntour GPX shifters (CV6)
5-One SR Custom 80mm stem (hobbitman)

I have the NOS cranset here, with a very nice BB, and the brake levers with white hoods should be here today.

All I need are bars, a seatpost, and a frameset.

For old tires I always ask myself if they are 'aged' or 'dried', and I never like my answer. Unless going on a non-rider or almost free.

Actual Shimano hubs that came on my 73 Sekine SHS. Should clean up well. Love the straight skewers.

Towards the end, with my last breath, I will throw myself upon them and commit Seppuku.

While the tires look a bit filthy, they are in fact quite soft, subtle and currently aging in my nice dark basement.

The 30s will get on the Frejus probably by June. The 25s are for an off-topic bike that I bought a new rear Veloflex Roubaix 25 at the end of last season. So both the FMB 25s should go on at the end of the 2016 season.

A box of spring spikes



They are the greatest thing since sliced bread, or, as my old boss at Raleigh would say, "These are the cat's ass."
.
I'm finally, after 30 years, insulating the shop in the basement. Glue 2x8 2" foam panels to the wall, then fasten strapping across, using the spring spikes. Drill a 5" hole thru strapping, foam, and into concrete, bang in a 4" 'spike', wham, bam, thank you M'am. Slick as greased owl poop.

It will be nice to have a warm shop.

That's a hell of a start. Nice that the instructions include a drinking step. Very thorough.

Thanks guys. My pic doesn't do them justice. I bought the second from the bottome paper quality print (I think) and they really look fantastic.

Here's a shameless plug for the artist in case anyone else is interested. Hope he doesn't mind.

A couple of goodies for the Klein - spring can't come soon enough.





Unfortunately, several of the outer plates of the chain are cracked... Sort term disappointment, but minor set back in the long run. Hopefully I can find a replacement fairly easily.
