The Finishing Touches

Last night I put the finishing touches on the beater which involved some more butchery.
I also put in the Shimano UN-54 bottom bracket that I ordered from Harris Cyclery. If you are one of those repack-the-bearings-on-your-old-school-bottom-bracket people this is definitely a lot easier, also this thing is smoooooooth! It made the ride quality a lot better, pick one up you won't regret it. I think Harris Cyclery is the best deal ( no I am not affiliated with them other than when my L.B.S. is stupid). you get the bottom bracket, plastic cup, and bolts for at the time of writing this $24.95 plus shipping. My bill came to $33.-- go ahead and compare.
