It is built

The geared Trek 69er has now been built, the only stumbling block is that I can’t get the rear tyre seated properly, it looks like it’s catching on the rim strip, time to attack it with tyre levers again.

Update: Apply two doses of Fairy Liquid, pump it up to 60psi, and 30 minutes later the recalcitrant bead pops into place.

    Probably to work and back tomorrow, then a proper ride at the weekend weather permitting.

    Did you do the washing-up while you waited seeing as how you had found the Fairy-Liquid?

    I did wash a wine glass while I waited.
