This blog is not about any one topic. It is about the many things the interest me and places I've been. It's about Travel, Bikes, Photography, Fly Fishing, Nature, Scenery, Projects, Genealogy, etc (the order of importance changes constantly!). Usually whatever is currently occupying my mind and time. Maybe something for everyone....or not!

Not true, but not untrue!

So, I tried one more time on the front wheel of the 'burb.  Still couldn't get it just so.  Took it to Bill @ my LBS.  He puts it on his stand, makes a few adjustments, gives me some pointers, and said that I really didn't do too bad.  That the 40+ yr old wheel will probably never be quite true again, unless I want to replace all of the spokes, which may not help.

He said the slight low spot (or flat spot) will not affect the ride, and I'll probably never notice it.

So, all that stress for nothin'!  I guess it's nice to hear I did the best I could for it!

And to top it off, Bill wouldn't charge me!  He's done that before.  Have to think of something to do for him!

The bikes almost back together, had to do some work on the seat.  Can't wait for the rain to stop so I can take a test ride, and some photos!
