Project Patience Wearing Thin
Well...as you might notice, this is NOT the project bike. This is the old bike, but there have been a few changes. The faithful Kogswell has sacrificed his saddle for the good of the project. The worn out bar tape has been replaced. There might be a few other refinements yet to come here, but this bike is, thankfully, in service.
The new frame is all but hurling verbal abuse. He is anxious to get on the road. Country bike that he is, living in Denton County, he is in his element. Well, if I'd hurry and finish-up, that is. Strictly speaking, hanging on a work stand in my living room is NOT the place for a country bike.
All I can say now is that the decisions have been made and last of the parts should arrive in a handful of days. Hopefully, they will all fit together well and not challenge my limited wrenching skills. If that happens, the country bike might just lose the last of his patience and give me an old fashioned whuppin'.
