I finally got something I wanted. Something I obtained by the transaction of monetary units that were earned with hard labor and sweat from my brow.
Something with just a hint of humor included for free.
Pure bliss in a 65/35 poly-cotton blend.
I also got the Misfit Psycles brass headbadge. I passed on it when I first built up the Misfit diSSent Brontoawesomeous Meatplow V.5, but now that the frame is polished, I decided to add it (and its inherent portly weight) to my head tube.
I took the time to paint the relieved portions with metallic pink paint. It looked incredible. Then I tried to mount it.
Just like Peter's current frames, the headbadges are NOT tapered steer tube compatible. They are curved to fit the standard 1 1/8" and NOT my highly advanced 44mm ZS compatible machine of (what was then) the future.
I don't think it's going to work on my new Misfit (yet to be named) either.
I only lost one spring for less than 30 seconds once. Frightful.
32X20 for life with yet another Endless Kick Ass Cog and stupid easy to get a perfect chainline Fibonacci spacer kit.
More about the bike when it is a bike in whole.
The Tour duh Charlotte just two days away.
I'm headed over to the Gentle Ginger's house to pack the prize bags tonight. The pile of prizes is quite impressive. They will be granted to the swift, the cunning, the brave, the willing to come to our event of great magnitude this Saturday.
