... can only mean one thing!!!
After the required greetings at the door, hugs kisses and general catching up, I was allowed out to my shop. Two large boxes were sitting there.
I opened the first to find two new 28" wheels laced to the hubs I had collected over the last few bikes I'd upgraded. They looked ok at first glance, but they were not packed all that well for bicycle wheels. I got the rim tape, tubes and tires on them and mounted them up...
The only disappointments I have are these:
First... The wheels are not true! Either they got banged around a bit or the spokes stretched during shipment... I have some work to do on them.
Second... they shop forgot to send the brake shoes.. so I don't have those.
I get the chance to practice some patience...
Here is the glamor shot, with her wheels on and a vintage brooks B-66. Still a ways to go, but its coming together.
