I just got a Topeak RaceRocket Master Blaster Bicycle Pump. It's tiny. I'm skeptical, but it's well rated, so maybe getting up to 60 psi and above won't be insanely hard. It will fit in my tool bag.

My VO headset is the caged bearing style. I would have liked to use the Grand Cru version with its cartridge bearings but it is only available with 26.4 crown race and I needed 27.0. I showed it to a friend who recommended Mothers Aluminum & Mag polish to polish the bearing surface. When I got home I used about a dozen Q tips and the Mothers and got a respectably smooth finish. If this headset ever needs replaced I'm going to have the fork turned down to 26.4.

Well, yesterday I received the set of old-school 100/120 spacing Phil hubs for my C&V 'touring' ride, thanks to a forum member.

Finally bought a Silca shirt, as they were on sale.

Wish they had hoodies.

Roberts built Geoffrey Butler frameset circa 1970s, rare with mudguard eyelets. From Geoffrey Butler country - Surrey (my home county).

Will repaint to original, still deciding on the final build specification - certainly period - near - correct.

Yesterday, a set of SKS B42 Commuter road fenders in black. They’re going to go on my brand new 1952 Rudge Aero Sport in lieu of or until I find s good vintage set of Bluemels Featherweight fenders.

Stopped at an LBS the other night as well, and picked up a new SRAM P1 chain, made for 1-speeds and IGH bikes.

Next I have to overhaul the front hub, the headset, and the BB, and then she’s ready for a trial cruise.

I'm pretty sure that light will fix the spooky. I love my Cygolite Metro. I have the mere 700 lumen version, and it is bright enough to annoy joggers if left on high.

Just an FYI, Daylight Saving Time is what we were on during the summer (extended). We're now on Standard Time.

So anyone out there complaining about DST? You've got it backwards. And personally, I hate ST here on the eastern edge of CST, as it's already dark before 5pm.

My buddy from SoCal just got back from a trip to the Philippines and grabbed me a few jerseys and a cap. Jerseys were only going for $4-$8. Can't go wrong for those prices. Received them in the mail today.

My phone memory is currently full, so I can't take pics of recent (and needless) purchases, but maybe I'll gather them all up for a group shot, as long as everyone promises not to judge (as I did above).

To go with the Phil Wood hubs mentioned in post 4008 above, the polished 27" Sun CR18 36h rims showed up today.

Next up: accurately measure the hub diameters so I can order a bunch of butted stainless spokes...

These wheels are going on my Uni Gran Tourismo... -- and they'll probably outlast me!
