OK, that does help. Yours has a decal instead of a riveted-on plaque. The hunt continues for the latter ... .

Wow -- it's beginning to look a lot like [a Carlton] Christmas.
I think I have everything I need for mine, except rims, spokes, and the ever-elusive head badge.

Nothing for me, but my daughter gave this bottle of celeste touch-up paint to my wife, who declared it to be her favorite color!

I cannot say that there was anything under the tree for me. But, for the very first time in a long time, I did not go to Jamaica for the winter. For the first time in years I celebrated Christmas day with family, here in Canada. Though I dearly hate the cold and love spending my winters in Jamaica, this had to be the best Christmas in years, simply because there was a tree and family surrounding it.

The turkey, stuffing, Yorkshire pudding, sweet potatoes and all was just great. I did not even have to do the dishes.

Best of the season to all and stay safe.

What a contrast to go from Thunder Bay to Jamaica! If you are into winter biking then I'm sure you have lots of opportunities this season! Happy new year and enjoy the great white north.

I am my own Santa. Sort of.
I'm not a gift-accepter, never have been very good at it.
Plus, I have no needs other than what Maslow thinks is essential.
Give me a dry cave with a fire and a dead mastodon, I'm good.

An old friend spotted these and wanted to know if I’d go in on one or the other.
Seemed like a good idea. I was fine with either one.
I contacted the seller, made the deal, arranged pickup and future shipping to me.
And paid.

Excitedly texted my friend, “we have them!”

”I think I’m going in a different direction.”

WTF. Jumped the gun on that one.

So now I have two.


1993 Rossin. Columbus tubing, crimped top tube. 2x8 Athena. Yeah, I Ike it.


2000 Colnago Master X Light. 2x9 DA. Wheels are toast. No biggie, it gets a complete overhaul.


Now Safely in another BF member’s storage unit.




and this:

Hey, I got a Brooks saddle, too. Copper rivets and undercarriage are valuable in the salty air of coastal Florida.

Brooks B17 Special Copper.

In my head, I am picturing a set of red and green lights attached left and right to your bars, with a white light in the center, along with red and green lights right and left just above your rear axle.
Just like a boat.
Or have I overcomplicated the picture?
Whatever you have, please do enjoy them!

Essential tool to deal with stubborn problems

I received what I consider to be one of the most essential tools in the Park Tool collection. The Park Tool BO-2 helps with the most serious bike maintenance challenges. It was a good gift

The more I use mine, the worse my builds are. It's the tool of the DEVIL!

Here's a picture. There may be duct tape involved in the installation. I already have 2 head lights and 2 blinkeys set up so these are mainly for fun. their pretty bright though.

I took matters into my own hands. My wife and I don't really exchange gifts and the kids are all poor college students so I make them promise not to get me anything.

I am still waiting for this to arrive for my winter project. So this is the the seller's photo.

Wow! That is a tall frame. The half-step-plus-granny gearing is a major plus, as well. Very nice!

Not nautical, but a knot I’m tying re: lights.

My Garmin taillights can operate as turn signals, and the switch came with one of them.
My Cliq taillight also operates as a brake light. You can see where this is going....pun intended.
Yep, I’m going to run a set on my Litespeed (rack eyelets for mounting the directionals.)
Headlight talks to Garmin. Turn signals that are also taillights.
A brake light that syncs its “normal” flash with others in the group.

As if cars will notice, but fun to try.
