Wealth is nothing more than having the freedom to maximize one’s life experiences.
In the precious little free time I have left to build R’s bike, today I only managed to install the front fork, headset, spacers and stem.
Remaining: bottom bracket, crankset and pedals; then derailleurs, brakes, shifters, handlebar, all housings and cables, rear cassette and chain.
There will be a lot of Youtube watching, as I’ve never done this entirely on my own.
I’m having someone else build the wheels, because it’s too complicated to do from scratch, and I was told that the first wheel that one builds always comes out crappily.
I probably should take photos of progress.
I eat so much better than I deserve
