One Last project III (Finale)

 I have actually been done with my Daughters campus bike for about a month.  I just moved to Spokane and was pretty busy on both sides of the move but I am finally getting caught up so back to the project.

Added bottle cage and pump.

I bought a new rack with lots of adjustment since this is a pretty small frame and I needed the adjustments to keep it level.

Added tailpack with tire repair stuff; tube, tire irons, multi-tool etc.  Rear and Front light and bell.

New rear brakes that I talked about in the last post.

The finished product before I delivered it.  

My ex was nice enough to send me some pictures of the girl on campus with the bike, I did some editing as my daughter doesn't like to have her picture on social media.

I hope the bike is useful and reliable for her while she's in college and yes I did give her  a lock which you can see in the shot of the bike on the hanging bike rack. 

In moving I did keep my big box of bike  tools but gave up my bike work stand and wheel truing stand and few other items but once I have a bigger place down the road, those things may come back.  

Ride. Smile. Repeat.


  1. Best wishes for a good life in Spokane!

  2. Doc Martins and a burqua by McGillaquadies. Nice! If you are signing off now how do I contact you? On your final page or by email or through mental telepathy?

    Whatever the case, RyRy, you will forever be in my thoughts; you were the first to make contact and you held on with me through all the twists and turns of the brief but marvelous Times of The Trailer Park Cyclist.

    Thank you.

  3. What a nice bike you have passed on to her, and wrentched up to many wonderful days of riding.
    Good luck with this new life in Spokane and keep us up on rides and future projects!!

    1. Thanks Jim I am hoping to get back on the bike in the spring and explore Spokane's extensive bike trail network
