Pulled two MTB's from the shed to photo only to realize they were both too big for a possible trade.

Spent the rest of the morning riding my chrome Soma Rush track bike around J'actionville. This one is sure to be put up by my son when it qualifies for C & V. Still having to go tender with the right Achilles tendon as I buggered it again during the MTB ride yesterday.

I dug out and installed a saddle and a bottle cage from my parts and pieces for a bike I'd cleaned yesterday and carried down to my basement office space/cave. And while I made a couple phone calls and sent a couple emails.... I admired my new wall queen. Although she has no space on the wall as of yet.

Pulled the crappy aluminum races out of a new Ritchey Logic headset.
Replaced them with steel races from a Tange Falcon, from when headsets were tough.
That'll show that headset some real balls.

Mounted 10-sp DA down tube shifters on a 1986 frame.

The fork smiled up at me.

"I missed you, too."

Washed the Raleigh, went inside as it dried, came out to a flat front tire I discovered the tube broke through the rim tape at a spoke hole, no problem, quick duct tape bandaid so I can ride it to work tomorrow. Nope. I start going around the rim tape and discovered 6 other holes, I'm surprised there was only 1 hole in the tube.


So since the tire was off I thought I'd take a green scrubby pad to the rim...
Before...

After...

Quite please with the result.

I might touch my Colnago when I get home. Certainly will look at it and the Pinarello, Bottecchia, Burley and Firestone!

Late last night:
Darken the salmon KoolStop blocks and insert to holders. Glue up tubulars. Install chain. Ran out of time after granddaughter was hen-hawing and yanking my arm to play cards. LOL.
This AM:
New front has a slow leak - aargh. No time for adjustment and ride. Took a few pics. That's all folks.

Thanks! I thought I felt a small ridge on the rim in the brake track, but wasnt sure if it was years of black crud or the rim starting to wear out. It didnt take that long either, which was cool. I need to get around to the rear rim but I hate mounting/unmounting these folding bead tires (they were free, trying to keep this low budget because poor status lol)

Added 700x25 tires (and yes they look huge), FD, shifter cables, chain, straightened the saddle.

When the brake levers arrive, will mount 'em, run those cables, wrap and shake down.

Very tempted now to go with some DA7400/Mavic GL330 tubulars, as these wheels are 2017g w/o tires.
Bike is 19.79 lbs w/o pedals or bag. Would be neat to have a sub-20 Ironman.

UPDATE: Finished it. Rides like an Ironman.


I need to send a bag of tubes to KOBE.....

Very nice, Scott. You have a knack. Play the cards, teach her some Euchre. Enjoy it.
Hope that leak is a valve core....

Getting back into fighting trim.

Rode 400+ miles in the last week and now that school is getting out, I am really ready to go after this after my recent illness.

Yesterday, I rebuilt the rear wheel on my Bianchi Volpe. A couple of spokes broke a few weeks ago, and they were the second and third non-drive spokes to break, so it was time. I replaced the drive side spokes a couple of years ago. While I was at it, I replaced the rim with a lighter one, and now it matches the front rim.

Packing for Yellowstone! My son (15) and I are off for a four day camp and doing a gear check. Drove over 1500 miles to get here and looking forward to seeing some wildlife. So gorgeous up here.
Means and I won't ride a bike for a week, but this is worth it.

Retired my road shoes purchased in 1991:

With these purchased this week:

the activity is moving the cleats and adjusting the position.

Cleaned my white handlebar tape. Watched my ride home on the Pin using the GoPro.

Yesterday we rode the tandem for 49.8 miles, had some trouble toward the end, and when we got home I found this:



So I rode the Gazelle over to Belmont Wheelworks to pick up a new PC830 (wanted the shiny 870 but they didn't have any), installed the new chain.

So today we rode another 18 or so.

6000 miles on a tandem chain? I think it was time for a replacement! The new one shifted very smoothly and precisely today. $14 well spent.

Raleigh Super Course for Touring

I am in the ADK, getting the house ready for summer. I also dragged this touring equipped 56cm Super Course out of the basement. Modified for a senior citizen near Montpelier, VT, but he never put it to use. Paint and decals are in VG condition and the components look new. VxGT RD, Deore triple crank, Bluemels, Nashbar rear rack, Blackburn front rack. Probably will put it up for sale.
