Meeting up in the time of Quarantine

One of the many things I miss is getting together with my C&V friends. Last weekend I rode over to Andy_K 's house. We shared a beer at a social distance, watching below his house as many people walked by on what used to be a rarely used trail. No pix on that, maybe I'm hallucinating that it happened...

A few weeks ago Insidious C. dropped off a Peugeot PX-10 that had a hacked off derailleur hanger (ferking fixie idjits) as well as a Trek 531 fork that needed some straightening. Luckily I still have a small stash of Simplex dropouts that JohnDThompson sent my way a while ago. I just hacked off the hanger, filed the interfaces flat, and butt brazed the new bit in place. The fork was straightened. Now how to get it back to Carl?

I emailed, he came over and parked on the outskirts of my property. The hand off was at proper distance.



Got any pix of C&V get togethers demonstrating proper social distancing?

Carl didn't want to use a Nuovo Record (or Suntour) rear derailleur?

Did my usual weekend ride with my neighborhood buddy yesterday. We didn't shake hands, tried to maintain distance while riding, but it's really hard to hear someone from six feet away as you're cruising along.

My neighborhood has been unusually congested with walkers, joggers and cyclists. I bet it's the same most places.

The beer looks tempting! Have not had one in months. No discernable benefit tho. Hmmm.

Gugies hanger repair is amazing! I don't think I could get that quality workmanship from a professional shop. Now that he's disclosed the Simplex stash I will return next off season with my Mercier 300 for the same treatment.

Simplex dropouts have the Campy standard 7 o'clock stop.
Huret used a 4 o'clock stop.

Vehicle in the background looks like an International Scout

Anything less is just a car.

It may not be a Raleigh, but I can say I own a 74 International.

Voice-activated walkie-talkies or radios are your friend for times like these.

I used to use a pair on rides. Lead rider had one as did the sweep rider. Great to be able to inform the leader of any trouble.
