Maintenance Friday

Did a little work on Frankenbike tonight. A few years ago I was looking through my bike parts and realized I had everything I needed for a whole bike, and then some. I bought a frame for $100 and put all the parts on it. Looked OK. I even road it now and then. Last year or so I've been taking parts off of it, and it's been sitting outside in the sun and snow and ice unprotected. Decided I wanted to bring it back to life again and did some operating on it in the dungeon this evening. Igor helped. It's a road bike frame, but I'm able to fit 32's on the wheels, so it's kind of a cross bike, but it has road brakes..... Here's a pic or two.
May take it out on tomorrow's ride.

Looks like a perfect commute bike.
