The rain coat for bconneraz is funny. I helped Santa bring me something I have been seeking for a few years. By way of a Paceline forum member a Serotta Atlanta frame that is a bit cosmetically challenged but the right price. The BB lug cluster is very tasty with the tubes getting fatter there. I literally dug into the bottom of the parts bin to be able to ride it today so Frankenbike is very appropriate for the test build.

Not sure what the components will be yet. Something alloy and shiny I guess. The 7410 crank looks pretty good IMO. Went for 17 miles this morning. Really fun. My wife still likes me so it's a good Christmas.

Apologies to those in the cooler climates for the beach photo.

Just need to scale that up to 1/1 scale, cut some plywood, and you have a new ride! :-)

I set a personal best this year.

Thirteen new pairs of socks.

I was nine when I set my previous record, which left me permanently scarred for life. jk

Acorn Boxy Rando Bag.

I told her what I wanted, she told me that she was unable to score the Acorn bag- what else could she do? I told her I'd love a Berthoud bag. And I would have. I opened the box. I saw the olive canvas and thought "she bought the wrong color." And then I saw the Acorn logo. Wow. I pretty much soiled my trousers.

I don't know if I call it weird. Perhaps sad, goldfinch. I have a beach bike that needs work and I just don't feel like doing it. So I guess I'll let the snow collect on it.

My daughter sent me this as a reminder of where she was born and where we lived for over 30 years, miss the weather and the traffic behaviors!:


I am restoring the finish on this for us and our future experiences in a new land without children:

Wow, your wife must have pulled some strings to get you a new Acorn bag, as those are pretty much unobtainium. You are a lucky man.

Are those cassettes in the background? I also see a vintage speaker. Nice to see you're rocking C&V audio as well .

The kids are at the grandparents' house, my wife was at work making double time. I had a whole day with no obligations. So it was time for a 100 mile ride in sunny Southern California. It was the perfect gift.

Got some neat things this year bike related. A cool vintage style messenger bag, a dring-dring, digital pressure gauge and some digital angle measuring tools. I use them for other hobbies but it will be interesteing to record and compare frame angles. The digital luggage scale was a gift to myself from the local CAA and it works great for recording weights of frames and completed bikes.

I must have been a good boy this year.
