good stuff, rotten stuff.
well........ the last few days have been "interesting" to put it mildly. i REALLY f'ed up the forks i built.... that's all i'll say, I'm over it. i just have to see it as i got a three day $200.00 fork building lesson. i gotta get/build/modify my set up for my needs and i'll be O.K. if you are gonna screw up, learn from it! on the other hand, annie's bike looks great. i'm gonna braze it up tomorrow. and, i told paul in the yukon that i'd post some detail pics of handbuilding my s-bend stays. also, in the super-cool zone, i got this sweeeeeeeet old vernier caliper from the boys at absolute bikes in salida, colorado! check it out! it's new! this thing is ancient, and really, really nice. stainless steel logos and fancy paint are one thing, but a straight bike is alot cooler. here's annie's bike getting the look over, and man, it is STRAIGHT! and, the view from our couch today. we are super gifted to live where we do. lastly, the hands that make it happen! i would have got a shot of both, but i couldn't hold the camera in my mouth. i tried, too. steve.
