Its been a fairly quiet week bike-wise. Not so work-wise and I may be after a new job soon.
This weekend I stripped down my Ribble. Without too many options, I decided just to clean it up and rebuild it as a road machine. The chainrings are the original, now 20 year old, ones, a bio-pace 42 and a 52. When I’ve got the money I will swap the rings for maybe a 38 and a 48 or 50. At that point I will also swap the cassette, chain and probably the jockey wheels on the derailleur.
I put what I had back together today. It is amazing how easy a 7 speed down tube shifter build is compared to the more modern configs.
Not too bad. The last pic exaggerates the top half a bit.
On a separate note, we have goldfinches in our garden…
Miles for the week – 120
Total – 1725
