So Jeff goes by his shop all the time (it is his shop after all) so he gets to fiddle with the project out of hours. Yesterday he removed some of the spring clamps from the rear end………and it didn’t explode! Jeff’s initial report is ‘good stiffness’. Of course he didn’t wrench on it excessively but so far so good. Thursday we are back at it…..drop outs, rear head tube, cargo bed side panels.
But yesterday was not a work day so instead we went to the Hand Eye Supply Curiosity Club (a fortnightly lecture series) in Chinatown to hear Michael Felix discuss human/computer interaction. Very interesting, very geeky. Michael is the creator of the Velosynth, an interactive sound device for bicycles that responds to motion and the proximity of other Velosynths. After that it was dinner at Gideon’s (red cabbage salad with cranberries and aniseed dressing…..mmm) then on to see The Scott Pemberton Trio at the Goodfoot. An edifying evening all round.
Oh, and Laurelwood Porter?…………it’s good.
