My nine-speed upgrade is almost complete! I've done two of the things that I hadn't ever done before: installing a BB and building a wheelset. Cool. Finally I have wheels that are both true and round, not to mention much lighter. Also replaced the cranks, rear derailleur, cassette, and chain. Unfortunately, the shifters I bought on eBay never arrived. The package did, but it was torn in half and empty. (An apology from the USPS was included). DOH! They were insured, but it's been several weeks since the seller said he would get me another set, and I'm still waiting... Anyway, the only other thing left besides the shifters is one rim strip (I ordered two and one was the wrong size!). Soon enough I'll be on the road again... Hopefully, that's when I'll find out that everything works perfectly! :-)

Until then I'll just have to stick to the trails!
