Winter bike build can start now.

Just picked up my old (28 years) TT bike from my painters(Hot Tubes). This is the third paint job that's he's done on this bike and I love his work. So today I just wanted to put the frame together to get a better look at the entire paint job. Now it's on to the build stage and I have a little bit of a twist planned for it.

Yup Feb is the month that you do a complete going over of your bikes so they are ready for a summer of riding. Preventative maintenance now will keep you from walking home next summer.

Ah, the Mass accent! Originally from Boston (Bahsten) and then Worcester (Woostah).
Moved here after retirement, and everyone thinks I talk funny!

Always hit George Street whenever I go for a ride out in Wista (lol) short steep thigh burner. Made famous by Major Taylor and used to have a little time trial up it until last year.
