Moved the old Graecross beast on, by way of Bicycles for Humanity. Procured for $50 off a departing backpacker, it was used as remote base transportation on visits up to the BF's place at the edge of civilization, and was a total rough diamond for its general age and provenance. Now the fella & I have met halfway it has mainly been an apartment block for spiders in the garage. It was an oddly sad farewell but will hopefully do someone, somewhere a bit of good.

Then bought a set of mudguards for winterising the roadie on the way home :)

Golf clap :) I have done it at home under controlled conditions; yet to discover how I would go out in the field ...

Welp, I fitted the mudguards I bought yesterday and aww maww gaww, it was the actual fire-truckin' worst job ever. Should have just thrown $ at it. They look good though and they'd better be worth it!!

Re-fitted the 3T handlebar and the K-Edge mount.

Anyone want to swap the handlebar? It is too much Red for me.
I need 40 C-C, 3T equivalent only. Thanks

Yesterday I began turning my C5 into Luke Skywalker*. FD cable refused to thread, so gave up, and moved to transferring the 105 on the Fuji. Will do more on them tonight, and hopefully finish by thursday.

Thanks. This is probably the next thing to this bike though the compy ride to the top may not be beneficial as I rarely use that position :D

Yes, Oppy C5. This now means it could be the only SRAM Force C5 in existence.

And yes, I've used tape on it a couple of times. I've also cut its hand off, watched it kiss its sister, and fight its dad for identity.

Oh, and:

Well, it is raining and won't be able to ride as planned. :(

Worst thing is, I tried fitting the DA Rear Wheel to see how it looks like on Bike #16. Oooh, please help, I can't afford the front wheel at the moment. The silver decal on the C50 works well with the Ti frame imo.
