Oooooo. While cutting grass this morning, I happened to notice something on my front porch... wonder what it can be!?

Went to LBS to get “guts” for new seat and...

... they had these two gems in the $1 grab cart. I already removed the clamps from the one in the right. I know I would have paid a minimum of $5 for new. I love it when stuff like this happens.

Test ride today. I made my son go with me and he agreed to go if he could lead. Actually he agreed to go if there was brunch after, and of course I agreed to that.

Bike ride great until I started getting a super annoying click in the bottom bracket. Has anyone used the Tange sealed American bracket? I tried using it on last year’s build and I had the same problem, so I didn’t use them. I put them on Teeth of the Hydra and the first two test rides were smooth with no clicks. There’s no “play” with the cranks. Would it be a bad bearing?

Everywhere should be like Mackinac Island. No cars... just bikes... and horses.
Being that I spent the weekend in Reno for Hot August Nights...I will have to respectfully disagree :grin:...Mackinac looks like fun, but I would more able to support a statement like, 'everybody should have a place like Mackinac Island to visit' :cool2:.

I would agree. It was a “heat-of-the-moment”statement.
