new paint job. new Brooks Imperial. new Fizik bartape. old everything else.
was just a pile of parts that looked at me in disgust last week. now I can get back to riding it around town.
I need to take a few links out of the chain and straighten out the front derailleur and it will be good to go. Its been a while since I've been on the road bike and the geometry was a bit squirrely at first. Might have to swoop up a set of cyclocross tires for it to take the beating that it is about to embark on.
After a few coats of clear after my scummy sharpie logos, I can say that they are on there for good. Or at least until anything bigger than a bicycle takes it out.
