Per my plan, I started Project 2. I spent the majority of my day mother-daying. Luckily, I'm surrounded by mothers, so I had to really dish out the super brunch. Consequently, I only got a couple hours to put together the Kogswell.
If you build up bikes a lot at home then you know the aggravation of being blocked by not having that one silly little part. Ugh. How many times have I been foiled by a brake cable stop hanger? How many times??
Well, add one more to the total, because I didn't have a 1 1/8th inch hanger to hook up the front brake.
If that were the only issue, then I'd still be riding the Kogswell to work tomorrow. But, alas, I don't have a flipping bottom bracket cable guide! Arrrrg! I swear I had one. And I think of all the frames that I just got rid of. All of them had a guide when I unloaded them. Bugger!
To the untrained eye, my shop looks like a disorganized mess, but I really can find stuff pretty good. Of course, I'd bet money there's a bottom bracket cable guide buried in that mess somewhere. And I'd say there's good money on a bet that the guide will show up tomorrow afternoon, after I go buy one.
Another successful sleep over in the tree house. Yes.
It turns out that the princesses were out in force yesterday. Maddie and her 3 year-old cousin, Livvy, were in gaga princess land. Seriously, they were speechless for a bit. And speechless takes some doing for that pair.
