wendy's getting a makeover

21 September, 2010


a long awaited bike makeover for wendy has been due. i mentioned in a previous post (bicycle makover) that i had wanted to change out her drop bars to cruiser bars. well, since i have extra time on my hands this week i'm getting started on her. last night the boyfriend and i struggled to take her handlebars, brakes, and cables off to fit in her new Nitto cruiser bars, and boy we were so happy we accomplished that step. she feels like a champ already but we still have much work to do, we should be done very soon.
