    That's the idea. That's also why I went looking for an old centerpull; the sidepull caliper I had looked like it might have an occasional conflict with my left heel.

    As cool as this caliper is, it might end up on top of the bottom frame tubes so it can be seen. It'll get mocked up both ways, then I'll decide.

    Looks like I'm not going to get done in time. No matter, I went down to Wichita and hung with the Coasters instead. 8)
