Friday night "Brown" dropped off my Redline Conquest. My in-laws were in town, so I did not feel bad about disappearing for a little bit while they entertained my son and doing a quick installation of the BB and cranks. Sean's curiosity got the best of him and he decided wanted to help a little bit too. I almost put in the headset, but my LBS was only going to charge me $10 and, because he is the only one in town, I thought I'd throw some business his way.

As it turned out, he threw in some spacers, thanked me for helping him out with the installation, and only charged me $5 for everything.

The bike was built up later on Saturday and I cannot wait to take it out for its maiden voyage. My wife is itching to get a child trailer so we can f-i-n-a-l-l-y get back riding with the local group. She is pretty motivated as she has signed up for her first sprint triathlon that is coming up in May.

Thanks.

I was able to scavenage a bunch of older parts for it and I was glad to see that no additional frame prep was needed. The HS cups went in smoothly as did the BB and rear derailleur. The cross bike is almost identical in fit to my road bike (e.g., reach, standover, saddle height, and drop), which I was not expecting, but pleasantly surprised.

Post a pic when your bike's done.
