The bike project – part 7

Started and almost finished a single speed mountainbike today according to the wishes of one single person… . And here’s the result:

The frame has been roughened with sandpaper and oversprayed with black varnish (silk finish for grounding). Today the black automotive shiny varnish was sprayed on some of the parts. If this job is finished it’s gonna look goooood.

When I tried to take off the crank protection to get rid of the two spare chain rings in the front, I had to realize that the three chain rings were riveted. So I figured ‘what the heck, just take off everything and put a new chain ring on’. I continued this thought until I realized that the crank corroded with the bottom bracket and there was just no way … which made me once more appreciate my choice for GIANT (10 years ago) where even the single parts are still of a decent quality. Fischer sucks (and I don’t mean Gary Fisher).

and you can pimp my bike next… yuri is not a giant but of some kind of swiss brand. it can stay silver and i’m okay with all of my gears as well (what is the deal with a naked, one gear porn bike?!). what i do want (nobody asked but i want to tell you anyway) is that is says in black writing on one side ‘one less car’ and on the other ‘ein auto weniger’. the black writing would be in stencil typewriter street art style. yes, of course.
it shouldn’t look like a tigerente when you are done – . everything else is fine.

thanks yo, m.
