The Build: Incremental Steps

May 7, 2011

I’m missing key parts to a completed build. Like tires and a chain. Oh, and brake cables. I’ll pick these up next week and complete the build. But here’s the latest pic with seat and crank. The seat post was stolen from my son’s old and discarded bike. I haven’t actually measured the length, but wanted to get it out of the box. The handlebar tape should—at a distance—match up with the saddle. It’s faux cork, which came at the right price (free). Not a perfect match, sadly, but hopefully not too far off. And less obvious once I have the garish toddler seat and rack attached on the back (the black strips on the seat stays are vinyl eyelets for the rack). More to come.
