Today I’ve been fixing things. When I schedule non-training related stuff, they tend to happen all at the same day. Because I have two upcoming shows at Saturday (weather forecast says snow for both shows!), I wanted to check that all my show equipment is working. So I went to Peugeot where I could work inside. Some of you might remember some stupid kids tagged on my trailer last year. That was something I wanted to cover over, and also a few sponsor logos had to go off. All my 2015 deals are not yet signed, so I don’t want to redesign the trailer yet. But I had to come up with a temporarily solution.
Straight from Peugeot I went to Sykkelboden in Drøbak to face the bottom bracket and headset on my new GT trials frames. I really want to build up the frames soon, and I want to do it perfectly. Unfortunately we didn’t have the right tool, but we made it work okay. Facing the surface where you’re going to put the bearings will enhance their life drastically, and everything is just going to run smoother.
The GT bike build is coming along. Now I’ve set up the brakes, headset, forks and bottom bracket. Only need to order spokes, stem and handlebar, and it’s ready to go. So unfortunately I won’t be able to debut the bike at the upcoming shows, but it shouldn’t be long before the bike is built up.
Ghetto style wrapping:
Do you even notice the wrap area is there?
This is how it looks inside my demo trailer. All thanks to Normeka:

The coolest car in Peugeot’s lineup at the moment: Peugeot RCZ R:
Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren. Hopefully I can test drive this one day in the future. This beast is owned by MB Norway:

The tool was originally for another bottom bracket system, but we made it work:
