Three Pictures


Three Cateye lights
Sent from the Cateye folks. These came in the mail today. I sent the Cateye folks the faulty ones in October. They were a bit slow, but they replaced the bad lights. Hopefully these hold up. My gut says the core issue here is how the light piece attaches to the lamp; it's non-intuitive, error prone, and fussy. We'll see.


The Hairy Gary Convertable Rack

Nearly complete. Made for the Nitto mini-front rack. I will soon have three forks with eyelets that will fit this rack, which uses the same braze-ons that my super fancy awesome rad rack uses. The plan is to have 3 bikes that can take one of three rack configurations: a single Nitto rack for carrying a small front bag; the Hairy Gary convertable for carrying medium-load whatevers; or the rad rack for carrying bigger whatevers. Yes, it's overkill.
Anyway, the "convertable" rack idea is from Alex.
Gary is a machinist by day and a bike builder by night. He obviously went with his machining side on this project. He's still finishing it, so I don't have it yet.



Zip Tie Heaven
At House of Hose. Dig those huge ones on the right. You could build houses and other big stuff with those monsters.

Too bad you didn't have all those lights for the Festivus.

That is the same light I've used for the last 4 years. It has served me well, but you are right, trying to put that wierd thing back together messes with me everytime.

I had one of those lights. Mine broke after about 3 months. I use one of these now:
