Nice build. But how do you find the position of the drops? They seem to be rolled very far forward.

The unusual shape of the bars means that to ride on the hoods they need to be like that. When I am happy with the gearing and shifting I will rotate them around and ride in the drops.

just serviced (ie dismantled and reassembled) the Cyclo 3 speed freewheel.
a few minor adjustments from its last ride, and ready for a lap of the suburb to check all is in good order for a proper ride tomorrow.

Reminds me of something our ride group ran into this morning.....
Nice to meet you at last CS and the bike looks impressive. I hope everyone at the café was suitably impressed.

Love the Hobbs bike complete with period equipment.
