Shop time

Finally worked at the shop yesterday evening. They cut hours for the part time guys, so i haven't been there much recently. The title picture is a view of our working area.

One thing i liked about the shop when i first started was the "shop bike". Its kind of like the "shop pet", but in bike form. Also, this bike is a conglomeration of warranty parts and pieces donated, there for making it the "shop mutt". From what I'm told the only part on the bike that has been on every previous "shop bike" is the rickety metal basket mounted on the front (for obvious food transportation from local spots like Mama Mia's or Big Joe's. Mama Mia's for subs, and Big Joe's for pizza).
Needless to say the parts wouldn't conventionally be apart of the same construction but...well there really isn't an excuse. If you happen to take a turn while pedaling, you'll soon find that the wheels and cranks don't belong to that frame, and if you're unlucky you might experience the pain that gravity can inflict.

(There is a better view of that basket.)

Friday's forecast is a high of 22 and a low of 8. oh yeah. I'm so looking forward to that.
