It is actually a fixed cup remover that I bent the rod for. @Mad Honk sent me the double handled screwdriver to see if it would work with it (he used it for a club bending machine thingy) made of case hardened steel. Perfect fit really; spot on.

I know I'm still downsizing and I ignored this bike for a week or two other than commenting how beautiful it was. Then they reached out to me and I made an offer that was accepted. This is pretty much how it just came in other than putting on a different saddle, seatpost and pedals for now.

The fit is going to work out too as the handlebar reach is only off by about 1/4" in the picture so easy to fix if I need. Need to go over it well but should get a test ride on it in a day or two. I know it's not vintage but it is a classic steel frame...with a twist!

I still carry a Mafac kit on my 1970-something Kabuki. I just used it on Monday to adjust the seat. Good thing I had gloves, those thin wrenches will dig into your hands. The only hex bolts are on the stem, so I have a small 6mm tucked inside.

I got some love from GF Sammie, that included a front hub for the Ciocc so now I can build the wheel. And a left crank arm from Jacob Lee that completes the crank set for the same build.

This isn't the first time he's done this. Many thanks.

Lots of things landed here in groovy Woodstock this week. For the two PX-10s: top tube cable clamps, basic bar tape, and I'm going to retap the cranks as well as those on Mrs. ascherer's Motobecane. Thanks to @LittleGinseng for the SR seat post - not sure bike it'll be used on yet, and @Mad Honk for the Campagnolo levers. So much goodness!

This wasn't exactly delivered to my doorstep, so I'm cheating on this post a little. It arrived in the trunk of my car. For the longest time, I have been wanting to stop in at Velo Orange. Things just never fell into place when I was in the area. Earlier this week I was working in Maryland and unexpectedly got out early. Being able to get your eyes and hands onto a product especially one as important as handlebars is good.

I received a box from Universal Cycles today, but all of the contents have dispersed so it's too late for an "unboxing" pic.

The most anticipated thing was a Lezyne Sport Gravel Drive floor pump. I wasn't thrilled with the quality of the Park Tool floor pump I had bought a few months ago -- the check valve didn't work reliably and in taking it apart to try fixing that, the needle fell out, which didn't inspire confidence in its accuracy once I got it back together. The Gravel Drive had good reviews, and as someone who doesn't use pressures over 80 psi, I have no use for gauges that go up to 160 or 220 (!) psi. I wasn't sure if I'd like the thread-on chuck, so I had ordered a $10 conventional pump head to put on if I didn't. Dig it so far.

Also ordered some white Zipp Service Course bar tape and a Rema "Sport" patch kit. The latter is different from the regular ones in that it has the smaller F0 round patches which I prefer.

I was admiring them in their showroom. The black with the Zeppelin fender contours look really good. It doesn't say, however, I suspect that the black is powder coat, so it should hold up to taking a few dings.
