Getting Close

The X bike project is coming together well, but we’re now in a holding pattern while I wait for some final parts:  the Wald basket, a new set of Tektro V brakes to replace the lack luster first versions, and a headlamp mount.  At some point, I also have to visit the local LBS and pick up a star nut.  The parts bin revealed an old Bell mirror, so that’s mounted for now and hopefully the optics are good enough.  If not, another B&M, like the LHT’s, is on the list.  This whole revision could be completed by the end of next week, and then let the break-in begin.

  1. The weather is beginning to cooperate. A good stretch of mild weather would suit you fine I’m thinking.

  2. Oh, don’t you just love the parts bin? I’m constantly amazed at what I come up with to use on projects.
