    How do you deal with the big fat tires

    I would go with V brakes cuz you are halfway there and said that you could braze. However I don’t have experience with a motorized build so don’t know about stopping power needed there.

    Don’t use vinegar!! Even though horsefarmer says he has had good results- Don’t do it!!! It only took my 1” pitch chain 12 hrs to completely fall apart in vinegar. it was perfectly functional too- just a little rusty.

    Coffee, Sunrise, November - All good!

    I spent time there. Mostly trying to chase things. One was an education, another was a job. There where other things too... Did they bring Mac Davis back like he hoped for?

    Any headset experts out there?

    A cheap set of calipers will get you a long way. I acquired some couple years ago and don’t know how I made it without them. They are easily in my top 10 most used tool list.
