    I changed the travel on my fork from 100mm to 130mm last night, changed the oil, and sort of installed it. I ran out of spacers so I couldn't properly adjust the headset. Of course I found some more when I was cleaning up at the end of the night.. I probably should have rebuilt the fork while I had it apart, but I never got around to finding and ordering the rebuild kit so it will have to go without for now.

    I threw some wheels on it just so I could admire the bike, and or course sit on it. I need to get a bunch of parts on order so I can finish building it up when I get back from my business trip next Friday! One thing that I totally didn't even anticipate was having to get a longer brake hose for the rear brake. The routing on the bike is pretty long, neither of the two rear brakes that I have are even close to being long enough...

    My bikes are never 'done', they're either in a working state or not...

    Actually my 2 Rockhoppers and my Iron Horse are all 'done'...

    Got the cranks and front derailleur mounted, the chain installed, and the longer rear brake hose fitted. Still need to bleed the rear brake, and possibly change/bleed the front hose. Then there's the pesky matter of getting a working rear wheel...

    Looks like you might have some time this week with a couple rainy days coming, hopefully we'll see it out on the trails this weekend.
