Default Re: Painting my bike

...I'm still not done. It is 90% back to being a bike though. Got the rear derailer back on and adjusted (not running a front), along with a new cable. Found out that I really need to get my other set of wheels fixed (bent axle on rear wheel, and both need bearings badly). This back wheel has a different spacing and was meant for a different derailer mount, so when I'm on the smallest sprocket, the chain runs over the mount bolt for the derailer. Not a big deal unless I want that top gear. New brake lines and pads and all that jazz as well.

My ambitions of having it all finished up this weekend went out the window. I am going to bite the bullet and finally order a shift kit from SBP on Friday...and hopefully some other goodies (Christmas is coming early this year). So once I get that in, I'll paint the brackets and then put it all together. Woo.
