Since the last time I posted, I ordered the Shimano 600 Biopace crankset from Michael at www.oldbikesbelong.com, which, including shipping, was about as cheap as what I’d been seeing on Ebay. It should arrive sometime today. I plan to take the Razesa, the axe-head pedals (MSK Lambda), and the crankset over to Luke’s for installation after work.
I’ve scheduled a haircut after work, too. Usually every month to month-and-a-half I get it cut pretty short because it’s unruly when long. Last time, for an experiment, I didn’t get my eyebrows trimmed to see if my wife would notice. She did. I’m not going to get them trimmed very much today, either. Heavy eyebrows on my asymmetrical visage bespeak the presence gravitas behind the otherwise undistinguished facade. Hoping they’ll also reduce by catching the number of falling pollen particles that’ve been finding their way into my eye of late.
The Shimano 600 crankset with (bonus) bottom bracket and Biopace chainrings arrived near the close of business yesterday, and I dropped the bike, with pedals and the aforesaid off at Luke’s yesterday after my haircut. I’m hoping to hear from him this evening that everything was bolt-onable without too much hassle.
