Thanks for the comments, as to the type of paint I use, its Krylon interior/ exterior.The first can was a paint /primer combo and the second was a gloss with a gold metal flake. Turned out nice and it only took an hour.
Its nice to see Velos in Alberta. We will have to try and get everyone together for a ride.
This site is a work in progress, as I get time and maintenance ideas.etc I will post them, thanks for the leads.
The Bluevelo decal was on the Mango, It was the first thing I removed, to large in my mind. I plan to add a much smaller version later. I want to support Ray as much as I can to get more velos out there. I have a small but growing bike repair biz that I want to promote and eventually sell recumbents and velos from!
Have a great day
Friday January 6
It was really warm out again today, we have had one of the mildest Dec/Jan in years here. No real snow, some ice but most roads are pretty clear. So after I replaced the tires from studded to the smoother ones that came on the bike ( I have two sets of front rims -I can switch them in 45 seconds each,straightened out the severe wobble in the one rim too, I went for a quick ride around the block. Low and behold I caught up with a good friend of mine that was on a walk; Marv and a bunch of us ride alot together, and beeped him with my horn! The look of surprise and delight on his face was a highlight of my day. He didn't know I had gotten the velo this week. So as we talked, A LOT of cars slowed down and gawked at the velo. Then another rider friend of Marv's, a local RCMP stopped and Had to take a pic.(Sigh, I guess it starts now)
I also replaced the foam grips with Black cork handle bar tape from MEC ($10.50)
Tonight at work, I fell off a belt loader at the airport, tweeked my knee. I hope I just sprained it. I do not want to be laid up with a new velo to ride!
Pics tomorrow, I have to get used to taking pictures of what I do - A blog without pix is so drab.
