Well I had a whirlwind couple of days getting ready for the St. Louis Bike Expo and Swap Meet. I showed off three bikes there. The first two being Mia's 24" mtb and Erin's lugged road bike. The third bike I showed off was my newest single speed creation with the GT40 paint job. I had hoped to show off my current 29" mtb with the triple top tubes however I ran out of time getting it ready to show. Overall however while not as busy as last year, I still got to meet a lot of people and had a great time!
At the shop I have had a small project replacing the rear drive side dropout of an older schwinn crosscut. The existing dropout had snapped off at the window and required me to cut off the remaining portion and slot out the stays to allow the newdropout to fit in. Once I had a good fit, the new piece was brass brazed in and then cleaned up. I was able to find a close match to the existing paint job and with a little primer and paint the finished project looks prettygood!
