Another Farmer's Market

The Saturday HC ride rolled to the Minneapolis Farmer's Market. Two of the riders brought their toddlers along. If you look closely, you'll see two kid seats among the bikes locked to the yellow railing.

I bought some more beets. I've never tried the orange ones.

Hiawatha Cyclery had a sidewalk sale. I bought tires and some little stuff. These tires are for the Raleigh roadster. It uses 28" tires (aka 635 or 700B). The tag on the tires, indicates it comes with a pre-installed tack, but I couldn't find it.

I intended to find parts for this green bike.

It plan on building it into a monster cross bike. I need mechanical disc brakes, long-pull brake levers, a rear derailleur, a tire, and a 40 degree rise stem. I forgot to look for any of those items. I have a rule that I need to make a list before going to a bike swap meet. I forgot the rule and got distracted.

Nice to see a bicycle work area that looks "lived in". That's the way mine looks. I have to wonder about the people that have all their tools neatly hung on peg board, the workbench clear, and no miscellaneous crap laying in every nook and cranny.

I wondered if anyone would notice the disaster I call my workshop. I have at least 5 projects going right now.

I got a new front wheel built last night using spokes I had in stock.
