Welcome to SOPO!
Thanks to New Belgium and Tour de Fat for coming into Atlanta. SoPo had a great time as we are sure Atlanta did too. We are glad that Tour de Fat came during Bike Month and the weather was so much cooler than last year. Atlanta was the first stop this year, good luck for the rest of the tour. Looking forward to next year.
Fixing up a bike for Charity Bikes and the tires are dry rotted. The tires are also an odd size, 24 x 1 3/8. It is a fractional 24 inch tire.
With a little bit of looking among SoPo’s tires, I found a pair for the bike. The tires were needed and SoPo provided. Soon the bike will be part of a Charity Bikes donation; getting more people on the road who have taken a bike safety and a basic bike maintenance classes.
Still stripping frames for Art Bikes and I ran into another bottom bracket that could use a special tool.
But the difference this time is that the tool kept slipping off the bottom bracket cup. Instead of working harder, I worked smarter by using this cool DIY tool.
Read on after the jump.
