Test ride in the road, seat was loose, headset was loose, front wheel was loose. Tightened up and took to the trail.

Okay, if I want to win this build-off, what else do I need? Haha

The closest I’ve come to winning one of these is like 11th place.
🤔

Some gold anodized on that thing would be ..............

Ride videos always add +1 to any build in my book! I start with everybody at 10 on a 10 pt rating scale, and then deduct from there.

So, currently, you are at 11 until the evaluation / voting process begins. :grin:

I wish I had weighed my Schwinn Racer as a stock build when I grabbed it out of that dumpster about a year and a half ago. It is really light right now! The one piece cranks, heavy steel chrome rims and that 3 spd Sturmey Archer hub, even the chain guard is beefy. I'll grab a scale at the bike shop on Monday when I ride into work and do a weigh-in.

3 keys to winning...
1. be one of the cool kids
2. bike must bend the rules to even qualify
3. contestant must smooze everybody else and provide positive commentary

It's hard man! #2 is the only one I can ever pull off. (but I'm working on #3)
