Busy in the Cold (and resuscitating roadrage)

The workshop adventure last night was a success, despite the fact that it’s cold enough in there to bring a bottle of Gambrinus drinking temperature in about 5 minutes. Scott built up the old Favorit track frame he bought here and Dula popped in as well to fit a new cog and chainring.

The company he bought the stuff from is called Gebhardt.  Evidently, it’s all made in Czech and made to order (diameter, teeth, color finishes) and the prices look pretty good, so give it a look.

I managed to take my wheel apart yet again, and managed to add acouple of new noises to the one I was trying to get rid of in the first place😉

Will try to announce workshop days a bit earlier next time, but it’s all up to the way time gets compressed at Gattaca II. Here are some shots of us working.

One sad little afternote to the evening – Scott and I went for a few beers to U Pinkasu after and someone stole the damned light off of my handlebars. Just a note to all you riders out there – In Prague, if it’s not nailed down someone will steal it. Thanks for all the memories…

    I have to get some racks built in there, because it’s already getting a bit tight… Whenever I’m there, anyone is welcome to come and work, but I have to sort out some sort of system for it if the place gets all popular like. Rent is 7k a month and I invested 11k in tools.
