If it was a Schwinn, maybe!

Since I don't want it to show up in reflections, I'm pretty much stuck painting this one flat black when its done. Far from the color I'd prefer it in, but it'll do....

I'm sure the new Pletscher is pretty impressive, but I'm aiming to build the camera support into the frame. I have a steel rack from rhm that's about the right size to get brazed on, but I'm not...

I get it now. I tend to watch the bicycle bits of BA more than the rest of the film, so I didn't remember this bit.

On that note, I'll gladly refund him whatever he paid for that...

Glad to offer it. Like you, I hope you won't need it - the original, painted boss is a beautiful touch on a beautiful bike (and that color is scrumptious).

I haven't really mentioned this, but in the years that I've been quiet on BikeForums, I've been at a local university's grant-funded bike education program. Been there for five years now and we have...
