Little update on the old Bridgestone. I thought it might be nice to have a bike I could lock up outside. I know this concept is very foriegn to me. I usually...almost always take my bikes in doors with me. I've reused almost all the parts. Adjusting the V-Brakes was a little tricky but I think what I've done will work. They might need some fine tuning. Re-hung the 105 Shimano rear derailleur. Cleaned it up a bit. Put a nice prologo saddle on top of the seat post that came with the bike. Added some mustache bars and funky older brake levers that I had sitting around. I have a more better front derailleur coming in the mail, as well as some funky grey camo bar tape. I need a set of tires and have been looking at different gravel tires. I haven't found a set that fits into my budget yet. Which is CHEAP! I found some Continental Speed King's used on ebay but I think the seller wanted a bit to much for them. I really wish I could find some 700c Knards. Something will turn up I'm sure. I might get some foamy grips also, haven't made up my mind yet. If it turns out to be a decent roller I might strip the paint off of her and clear coat it. IF it's a good roller.
