The light blue bottle cage was the final touch. Over the two weeks since I bought this NOS frame and wheel set, I scrounged up enough Dura Ace to get it complete, and the PROFILE bars in front to be period correct. Fuck YEAH!
Can’t do the SIDIs and the Time pedals with the broken toe still bothering me. I’m wearing Birkenstock sandals, so I look like a hippie as I go along speedily. Perhaps my thousand yards of pavement stare counters that effect.
I’m happy with this. I rode it to the bike shop and on the way it started raining and almost hailing. All hail senna’s first time trial bike. Too bad it doesn’t hold racks and bags. I like the little wheels, they really get going quick!
Sipping Nigori creamy white samurai goodness this afternoon, watching the rain come and go.by
