Things have been quiet around here, haven’t they? But, it’s not that I’ve not been doing anything–I’ve just not been writing about it.
Here’s a quick run-down of what’s happening at chez Singularity, which will have to take the place of any real blogging.
- I continue to ride the SSCX-of-a-sort Raleigh One Way. I’ve done nothing but mount new rubber and lube the drivetrain. Lots of work to be done there.
- The new-to-me 1981 Trek 613 frame is on the workstand, where I continue to do little more than admire it’s steely goodness and mull over what to do with it next. A winter project, to be sure.
- I’ve just taken delivery of a 1993 Serotta Colorado TG, but haven’t had any time at all to fantasize about its future–but I can tell you that it will either replace the Salsa La Raza (which is too small and flexy for me) or will be built up as a more traditional, downtube shiftered roadie. Another winter project, to be sure.
- Speaking of winter, I’ve mostly built up the winter beater from the bare frame (I tear it down in the spring for a good cleaning). It just needs a chain and brake cables and it will be ready to ride.
Of course, I’ve also been riding a bit–to work as usual, errands and the like, and a couple of longer rides. On the latter note, I can say that I definitely enjoyed, despite winds that nearly blew me from the road on a couple of occasions, my solo ride yesterday. Wasn’t feeling particularly spry, but it did help blow out the cobwebs a bit.
And it was a beautiful day. One can’t really ask for much more than that.
