    Leg Day, resurrected

    No fenders in the plan, but I'm on the lookout for a cool chainguard. If nothing catches my eye I have the Wald to go back on it. I'm all about comfort, My goal with this bike is comfy to ride, but still good-looking. The whitewalls gotta go; black slicks will look better to me.

    Hmm, I took the wheel off, looked at it, and put it back on. Works fine now. I think maybe the chain was too tight. I'm thinking with the wider rims, Leg Day has kind of a motobike look. What style of seat would look best? I like longsprings, but I'm working with a tight budget. Any suggestions...

    The more I look at it, the better the copper looks to me. I'm going to keep them until I can get a set of black 3Gs. On my way home today I was picturing in my head a bike frame almost entirely composed of forks, except for BB and head tube. It would be ridiculous! But in a cool way I think.

    Leg Day, resurrected

    At first I was planning to match the blue, but now I'm leaning towards gloss black. Thanks. It's not bad, I put a 22 or 23t cog on the hub, I usually ride in gear 3 or 4, I got used to a high gear when I was riding my old singlespeed it was a 16/52. Unfortunately I did something while putting...

    Sooo... I have no patience. Instead of being sensible and waiting until I have the new rims repainted, I went ahead and laced them up to the Nexus 7speed already on the bike. After I get back from my upcoming road trip I'll get it done proper.

    I ended up selling the Evans as a complete bike a while ago. I don't have a problem with parting out a rough bike, but I like to see them go intact when I can. It's not as flashy, but I have a NOS Wald chainguard I can put on it.

    I took your advice and swapped out for a larger cog, probably a couple days after you made the suggestion. It's great, I ride it to the convenience store or work now and then.

    Leg Day, resurrected

    Long time, no update. This has been at a standstill, though rode quite often, for a long time, but I finally got the next parts for Leg Day. Thanks to @kingfish254 I just picked up a set of 3G rims. They're the wrong color, but that can be fixed. They'll be laced to the hubs already in use, I...

    I have a Cycle Truck with orangewalls, it took a while to find a set of tires that were close enough in color and tread pattern to work.

    With a little bit of spraypaint the cupholder will be presentable.

    I know I'm late to the party, but maybe you could borrow a kid for test fitting.
