    Got these in finally. Too bad the budget's shot again and it's all gonna just sit for months.


    Since "Oil Can" finish isn't available I'm spending the rest of the evening polishing the cups out. Too bad they're also outed on the stainless 1-1/8" top-caps.

    Wanted a lightweight pack to hold the essentials and more water than possible with two bottles, so got a Camelbak Classic with 2,5 litres reservoir. Was planning on getting an Evoc CC 3l instead, but the Camelbak was 30 cheaper and could buy it locally so had to give it a try. It's my first hydration pack, we'll see how I like it :)

    After buying my Parktool PCS-10 Bike Stand I thought I should start buying matching tools. I know I don't "need" them, because I have most of them in other brands and shapes, But I thought why not.

    I do like the magnetic Parktool Bowl because I'm always placing stuff and forget where I placed them.

    It's a fun learning experience! I've got a few rides on my first set and it very satisfying knowing that I built my own wheels. I'd highly recommend getting a Park TM-1 and Roger Musson's ebook that has everything you need to know.

    Got a few new parts installed today!

    Swapped out my 32T for a 30T NW (the start of this season is getting pretty rough this year with that 32)

    Got my carbon bars installed and also put a Knog Oi bell on the right side of the handle bars. It's a rather polite sounding bell :) and blends right in. Beats shouting for the hikers to hear you coming. Between this and a Hope hub, they should hear me coming now.

    I tried that Knog Oi in the 22.2mm variety. It wasn't loud enough for me. You gotta keep ringing it until you get a response. The 31.8mm version (for road handlebars) is another story though. Using a Timberline right now (got it from Jenson with 15% off coupon), but think the Spurcycle v2 will be the one to get.

    Still waiting for black brass nipples to arrive, and then the build.

    It's a 26x2.8 WTB Ranger tire, WTB Scraper i35 rim, on a Nukeproof Generator 3-in-1 front hub for a rigid 26" Ti SS front wheel. The DT Comp spokes came with silver alloy nipples, but I decided I need a stealth look.

    Might be together inside of a month for riding.

    The front hub came with spacers for three different drop outs, and that helps for potential fork and bike swaps for this wheel.

    Nice, DF. I have a 2002 Quest, chrome 631 frame with blue anodized rims/hubs. Back then, the Quest still had traditional geometry with a top tube parallel to the ground. A nice steel bike will last forever and rides great! I love the minimalistic look of the thinner tubes. I also have her mountain biking twin sister, a 2003 Dakota in 631, it is my singlespeed. I've always wanted an Eclipse but not sure that will ever happen.

    They also had a bike stand for $10 which I did not buy because kind of the object of ruining my afternoon by having to make a trip to Aldi's is not to spend a lot of money. I use my car bike rack carrier to work on my bikes.

    Bike pack with tools. Tool kit is a little heavy, but I need box end wrenches for one of my bikes. $15.00 at Aldi's for the whole kit. I think the bag itself is $25 everywhere that I have looked.

    Backpack, also $15. Wanted a backpack that would have webbing for water bottles, and also for extra food and a camera. To my surprise I found that it had a bladder when I got home.

    They also had a bike stand for $10 which I did not buy because kind of the object of ruining my afternoon by having to make a trip to Aldi's is not to spend a lot of money. I use my car bike rack carrier to work on my bikes.

    Hey Bill, where you been?

    You bought this stuff at Aldi's? As in the discount supermarket chain???

    Yes, Aldi's. Think there was only one saddle bag left, some things disappear pretty quickly, like the $45 chainsaws. I must mention however that last winter I was working on my bicycle and my 15mm box end was nowhere in sight(in a tool box somewhere else on the property). I had seen that they had box end wrenches at Aldi's for $5. I knew we were going that day so I picked up a set, there was no 15mm. Sizes were 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17, 19, 21.

    Ideashop bike bag, amazon. I doubt it has the integrity or weight-bearing attributes of something 6 x that price but I don't need those features. :)

    Lots of upgrades to come!
    Upgraded stem, BB, tires, rear shifter at purchase. Wheels are next. Probably add a Wolf Tooth dropper lever and 49 tooth cog to that next. And a saddle. I like the feel of the WTB, but not the rail popping out. Suggestions?
