You know that bike wants to go home to Arizona. Sadly, the seller fell ill with a couple of weeks ago and promised to reach out when he was better. I'd be happy to facilitate the sale by picking it...

Heard back from the seller this morning ... he has Covid and isn't doing any selling right now. That's rough for him, and a bummer for me. I'll let y'all know when something happens with this bike.

Mystery Marketplace Bike: COLIN

Took a quick ride at lunch and it felt good! The Paselas would probably have felt better, but you can't win them all. The finished 21" bike weighs 31.5 lbs as pictured, which is 10 lbs less than my...

Brakes

I haven't mounted a wheel on the back since the hub is in an orderly line on the workbench. Doing much bending in soft aluminum does seem like a long term problem, so thanks for steering me away from...

Monday Night Wrenching

With the cranks back on, I refitted the guards. Wheels need a bit more love (and 3/16 bearings for the AW), but that's about it.
