The biggest news since my last post is that I managed to do an endo on the bike today while crossing a ditch. Turns out that the torsion fork compressed soooo far that the tire jammed against the fork crown, locking the front tire. --I will have to concoct some way of limiting the fork travel so that the front wheel will not lock again when I hit a big pothole or get run off the road by a cager. I could also switch the front wheel for a 20“ to fix the problem. The fork still works quietly, with no rattles or squeaks. --I added a third bracket to the chain guard and it is steady now. Doesn’t rub on the cranks or chain. --I stuck a wine cork in the grip shifter since I haven’t come up with any mod for it yet. I wish I had something for it that matched my purple jeweled valve caps. --I still need more leg room, even though it’s a 24” bike. Thighs start to burn before the mile mark, even in low gear. I’ll try a lay-back seat post before resorting to a longer sear and sissy bar.
