Winter project: completed.


his fall I posted about a winter project I was starting: building a bike. I started with a Mercier Kilo TT Deluxe frame in the middle of October, and each day I got a paycheck I ordered another component. It was getting built up and complete enough that by the time Christmas rolled around, my family was kind enough to gift to me the last pieces I needed. In the days since, I’ve finished putting everything together and now have a operational bike. Hooray! Since I haven’t got a deathwish, there’s a front brake on the way. But aside from that, it’s finished! Also, did you know that in English, “mercier” means “haberdasher”? And that, also in English, “haberdasher” means “clothier: a merchant who sells men’s clothing.”? Thanks, Google.

I can’t wait for spring!
