10’miles on the Shelbinator for a good break in. The shifting misses the indexing, but have it figured out pretty well now. The seat isn’t too bad now that I have the tension in post adjusted down. Going to try another post later today.

We get to spend a lot of time together riding. A pleasure to call them friends.
Nothing better than hanging out with great people. And their great bikes! :thumbsup:
Seconded on all counts!

I was up working until 0130 and my friend Ukulele Dave swung by to help for a bit.

On-Topic, this bike looks like the front end would be light and it's not. The different saddle looks like a winner to make it comfy for rides longer than 10 miles.

I finished up the wheels of wheelie bar. Found some roller blade wheels locally that worked perfect with the right combination of hardware and spacers. Debating on diagonal position. I’m sure it’s strongest where it is at with this triangulation. But kind of wanting that old retro funny car look.

With those little narrow wheelie-bar wheels, wondering how they would look on the outer of the wheelie bar sissy with a rod all the way through. And a spacer tube in between.

May give you some stability for that long wheelie ride. Just a thought.
