What to do when you have the flu

Right!,..change the bike that you thought was finished ;)

I replaced again some parts, i was still not satisfied with the looks.
You can say that i am desideless but Rome wasn't build in one day either.
I just need some time to work on the build,..play around, and let it work.

I took the Tioga Disk out again, and replaced it with a new wheelset (Silver Chris King Hubs, DT spokes, Mavic X517 Ceramic rims)
It is a gorgeous set of weels, i have the same in the Serotta, i just love the looks and also the soud it makes ;RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR ;)

And then some other parts got replaced;
The Black Syncros Seatpost and bar are now Titanium once, and the Flite Sadel is now a period correct Titanium Flite Sadle

Now it is finally ready to make the first spin around the block -> i know, i am imberrased but i have never used it, not even sat on it,... (Oeps;) )

i guess it is time that i try it ;)

I thought the Tioga Disk would be the winning team in the Yo but afterall i didn't like it that much :$
I always wanted one and now that i have it , i do not want to use it, maybe i should sell it.

That Yo Eddy looks great. Nice job. Really nice.

I have a 1991 Yo Eddy that I've owned since 1993 or so. I'll get some pictures on my blog eventually.

If interested, I just posted some pics and info about my 1986 Fat Chance.
