As I often do, I started a post, and never finished it. I'm a terrible blogger. So my January update became a May update, and things have changed drastically since then. I think we'll need two updates to catch up.
For starters, let's look at the list I had back in January;
- Rocky Mountain Cardiac - done!
- Land Gear - sold!
- Kona Fire Mountain - sold!
- Jamis Diablo - done!
- Kuwahara M4.5 Savage - sold!
- Kuwahara Instinct - sold!
- Rocky Mountain Summit Max
- Kona Explosif - sold!
- Santa Cruz Heckler
- Santa Cruz Tazmon - sold!
Whew! That's a lot of activity. The Tazmon sold on eBay, the Explosif is going to a friend, the Kuwaharas went to another collector/restorer. But there's even more, because after moving out those six bikes, I have four more in their place;
- Cannondale M500 - sold!
- Mystery Steel MTB
- Rocky Mountain Stratos
- Lemond Poprad
- Giant NRS
The Cannondale is already sold?! I can barely keep track.
The Cardiac is done, I did a series of posts on Instagram as I built it in a day. It's been for sale for months, but no takers. So I took it apart again, and I'm going to change it up. I'll have to do a post on it.
Not sure what to do with the Stratos. It's perfectly nice bike to roll around on, which describes just about all of my bikes, which means it's pretty redundant. It's just so hard to pass up and original bike like that.
The Lemond is way too small for me, but I just had to have it for the bar con shifters. And the price was just too good to pass up. It's the best kind of project; the kind that leads to more projects.
Same for the Giant NRS - it's a 16.5". But I can make it nice and it's still a decent bike. Very adjustable with the RockShox SID shock on it.
That leaves the Mystery Steel bike. I don't know what it is, but I will put it back together as best I can. Though I don't know how much work I want to put into it.
