No matter that I've added the rear brake and rear derailleur. No matter that I told him that the remaining parts would be here Monday. No matter that only cables, chain, and bar tape remain and I promised to finish the build Monday night. He wasn't satisfied. The sun peaked through the clouds for a few minutes and Country Boy here nagged until he was outside in the fresh air.

Great. That was just the kind of encouragement he needed. Now he will be a relentless nag as I attend to other things around the house. He wants to ramble down some county road so bad, he's straining at his fancy lugs.

It's going to be a long weekend.


  1. Gonna be very pretty when finished AND on the road.

    I have some bike excitement coming later in '09, but cat ain't out of the bag yet.

  2. Hmmm... Later in '09, huh? Sounds like it could be delivery of a custom...or something else on order...or maybe self-made...

    Let the speculation begin.

  3. Can't wait ti see the finished bike. It's been quite the tease. Next month I plan on ordering the last of the parts for my custom made frame.
