Sal collected $225 from teams at a bonspiel on Friday for the Ride and now that the article hit the paper I sent out emails to friends and sports contacts. A few people responded over the weekend. I'm up over 25% of the $5000 goal I set so I'm optimistic that by June I'll get there.
I threw a few of the parts destined for Eyowen onto Cecelia just to check the fit (so far everything I ordered works) and really wanted to take her out but -25 is a bit cold. I'll get some pix up later, she looks really great. I made a bike stand out of 1/2" black pipe from some plans on a site called 'Instructables' and it worked out pretty well and cost less than a third of a real stand. Makes putting on parts and adjustments much easier. At least I don't have my girls in the living room like the one in the picture! Not yet anyway.
