Something to do with my free time.

Build a bike!

Why not, all the cool kids are buying/finding old 10 speed frames and converting them into single speed/fixed gear cruising bikes.

So I got myself a Bridgestone Kabuki - it just needed wheels, cranks, gears, tires, a better seat, brakes (maybe). I am trying to make it with all used parts - as much as possible. Certain things are a little harder to find. Any ways - I guess I should take some pictures.

I have learned a lot about fixing/maintaining bikes just this weekend, and it has been a blast. I can now clean and repack the bearings in a bottom bracket.
