RDO- Almost…

Filed under: Around the shop — Andrea @ 9:18 pm

After going to bed thinking that I’d stripped the threads of my rear triangle, I was relieved when I found this morning that I was mistaken. Since my dad always told me that I could mess up a crowbar, I’ve decided that this bike’s name is “Crowbar.” Along the same lines, the reason why I’ve built this and have not ridden it yet is because somehow, I don’t have the correct front derailleur. I’m not 100% sure I ordered the wrong one- I’m suspicious that my bottom pull was somehow mixed in to a customer’s purchase last month.

Either way, it’s going to be a few days before it’s ride-able…
