I'm slowly building up my resume of capability when it comes to wrenching. It's an exciting thing.
The other day I was working on my bike at the local co-op and a "customer" came in to get some tips - and they asked me. So I answered and I must say I think I passed pretty well as someone who knew what they were talking about!
I'm learning things because of my own building adventures. For example, I've never, ever installed a threadless headset. I didn't know how a month ago. And I'm not saying that because I've done one that I am an expert. I'm just suggesting that when its learning about something you love this much it does tend to stick.
pinkbike and some nice no-name black forks from a west-coast dealer. Not sure if the photo captures it but the black is the secondary colour on the bike and I love the small red touches I'll be adding (starting with this headset). There will also be red in the grips, the valve caps and perhaps the drivetrain somewhere. I just think its good looking.
