China Doll....I like that! Well I placed my order for my china doll yesterday and I'm waiting eagerly for tracking numbers
The family is gone for a quick over nighter, soooo while I wait for my new baby in the mail I will get to tinker around on the bike and keep working to get it ready.
As for the drum brakes on the front, I never knew there was such a thing! Brake research begins. My limited physics training says that brakes, and a back up brake are up on the drawing board first. I'm hoping till the $$ comes in for drum or disc upgrade. i'll be beefing up the rim brakes.
the bike is a 7 speed.....
ideas about ditching that and installing a donor rear wheel with brake hub?? Or keep the gears??
