OK, I'm going to fight the urge to type everything I have in one long sentence.
Great weekend for riding, on saturday I spent the morning in the shop rolling and bending tubing for a bicycle trapeeze that goes to an acrobatic troupe in SE this week. I tacked it all together, swept the shop and went for a ride. I guessed wrong with the weather direction and ended up in the fog for a couple hours but still had a good ride.
When I got back I cleaned up, ate and hit the shop again to weld it up. I guess it will be hung from the ceiling by several ropes and there will be a skit performed by numerous skinny-strong people moving in, over, on and around it. I'll keep you posted if I get pictures back.
Today my pal Hugh came over about 9:30 and we hit the road for bald peak. The route of choice was albertson road which is a 3 mile gravel grind of a hill that hits bald peak about 3/4's of the way up. A quick drop into Laurelwood put us on the road for home. Two sweet rides in a row is pretty rare this time of year, I'll take it!
I think I've figured out the reason to my infrequent posts. It has to do with importing pictures.
My current program is this; snap a shot with my Iphone, email it to myself, save it, rotate it (if needed) and then post it when ready.
I've tried Dropbox but I couldn't figure out how to re size them.
My question to you my 4.5 faithfull readers is what would be the simplest way to speed this up?
Feel free to flood my inbox untill I cry mercy.... or merci (if it's good info :)
Heres this weeks pics; Mikes bike is still on the rack awaiting finish work, it was sunday so I get to work on my own stuff.
I got my gravel crusher going this afternoon, mitering the main triangle and drilling h20 holes.
I use a centering bit in the mill, it makes the cleanest hole that i've found for this operation, someday i'll make a dedicated jigity-jig for this but this is working for now.
H20 bosses; 6.5" from the bb for the ST and 8.5 for the DT to the bottom holes . They are 2.5" apart or 5 chain links if you are doing it by hand with a pilot drill.
So heres all that plus a random shot of my tubing block drawer and a couple tubes waiting for my new mtb (!!!!!! i'm excited for that!!!!!). Also a shot of the trapeeze.
More later i'm sure. thanks for reading.
