It was either this or rainbow-flag body paint

… and the rear triangle still hasn’t disintegrated on me! I guess it’s time to start laying out tubing on the basement floor so I can mock up an “almost mountainhack but with 73°/73° geometry” frame.

I rode past the Morrison Bridge while it was in the middle of a bascule lift mechanism test.

Levee has, after an interval of a few years, been rolled up to version 3.5b with tweaks to make it compile on OSX 10.10 (
getline() are now part of the stupid standard library on that machine; I just can’t wait for 10.11 and to see what other parts of levee are suddenly part of the standard library), some proofing of the documentation, and the addition of a new feature (
g, in visual mode, maps to
1G for symmetry with
G – without a count – mapping to ∞
Given any luck, these teeny changes won’t make levee into the electronic equivalent of a paper shredder. Why not download it and find out?
Over 50 years old and still in operation.

The GT reassembled and ready (hopefully?) to ride again. Don’t look too closely at the paint job!

Dust Mite helps me decide what to eat for dinner.
Only a couple of gloss clear protective coats to go, then I get to reassemble the whole shebang.

2 (of 3) coats of gloss ivory paint on the GT’s frame+fork. Alas, this rattlecan paint is pretty fragile and if I look at it too severely it chips :-(

A triangular porteur/randonneur rack?

A hot sunny weekend day => everybody wants to go to Multnomah Falls.

A tea strainer holder, made from three stainless steel spokes brazed together.

A reinforcement for a wiring port (on my GT) made from an eyelet out of a worn-out Mavic Open Sport rim. There are two wiring ports on this frame – this one under the downtube up by the fork, and the other on the seattube right where the seatstays cross by on their way to the toptube (I reamed the top 6 inches of the seattube from 26.6mm to 27.2mm, and the seatstays cross about 7 inches down from the top of the seattube) so I can run wiring via the BB (and also run wiring out the chainstays if I want MOAR LIGHT!)
Dozing cat, dozing mite

A sunny day after a few days of cold drizzle.

I’m stripping the paint off the GT so I can braze a bunch of stuff on without making the machine more of a collection of paint patches.
Do not worry, I had another set of Gary TURNER decals lying around just for this eventuality.
