    Rainy day...

    unemployment, boredom = a good time to wrench....
    in the interest of pure aesthetics, i tried to polish my Cooks Bros. RSR cranks to remove the anodizing... I got halfway through one of the cranks it when the Dremel wire brush disintegrated... While looking through the parts box, I find an old used XTR crankset and BB... Then I remembered George's had a Spot spider/chainring... Here is the before and after... I like the Shimano grey a little bit better... The BB was actually shot to heck so I had to buy a new one...

    I wouldn't mind being unemployed right now.

    Just curious...what'd you do prior to being unemployed?

    Actually not unemployed...

    more like retired from software consulting... I opened up a little bike service/repair thingie out of my garage to do on the side (and because I like wrenching). Later this year, will probably begin framebuilding (steel).
