after convincing myself to keep my Ti tri frame (again), i got to work making it my SS winter miles bike(for when it is just too shit ride another one of my bikes). i had most of the bits, and after getting a non eccentric axle for my rear hub i put everything on it, ready for the surly chainring ive got coming tomorrow. i even got as far as putting two light mounts on the front...
in realizing that i don't have a rear light i had an idea..........
i had these sitting around (for another silly project). the frame has holes in all the tubes, for (i assume) when it was purged during welding. the only trouble is, they are fucking tiny and 12 cm down the seat tube. i ran some old gear inner as a guide (worked well, only took a couple of minutes of swearing).
it wasn't of much use though as none of the wire i had sitting around would play ball and get through the hole in the seat tube.
then i remembered the dead head phones i had sitting on my desk.
a bit of dodgying with the inner cable 'guide' to make it hold onto the wire, and 20 minutes of swearing with a single strand of brake inner and it came out of the DS seat stay.
so, i have the beginnings of my TRON bike. awesome.
