Chop job

Mikey's SS commuting sled was giving him some grief, being a bit to stretched and low for the little fella. Now we can't have that, can we? So taking a cue from pics of fixies on the net, I offered to do some modifications for him, which he stupidly agreed to all too willingly.

After a couple of hours of sawing, filing, experimenting with different levers, taping, un-taping, re-taping again and again, we had success. Except minion Nigel thought it was sacriledge to chop a Japanese Nitto bar, but who listens to him anyway? They're sellin 'em for twenty bucks, forgodsake! And if Mikey's happy, everyone's happy.

Yeah, cheers for that. I'm finding it heaps better. One thing tho...
It was a couple more than a couple of hours. If I remember rightly, They were a one of those little jobs that just won't go as smoothly as they should.
I'm very grateful though. And it gave you something to do that day.
