In case you haven’t noticed, I go through a cycle of obsessive phases. VW, Defender, Photography, BBS, and now: the Bicycle. Nothing ever really gets followed through to it’s end, but at least I learn a bit along the way which is all I’m trying to do anyway. Once I come around full circle I’ll finish the project, but it’s usually frustrating to those around me. Although, these aren’t all total flops: the BBS is up and the bicycle is built (pictures to come) so it’s not always a total flop. Money and frustration usually get in the way.
Anyway, I came across these great sites for bicycle stuff: Persons-Majestic and Sheldon Brown. I’m always amazed to google for something bike related, only to find it on Sheldon’s site. Great resource.
