First Pieces

Some of the first pieces of the Project Fun Bike puzzle showed up Tuesday. The coolest thing was this:

I've never owned a King hub in all these years, so it's pretty cool to finally have one. Really, it's a work of art. And so light. Notice the 20mm thru-axle.

Yesterday I laced it up, and the wheel came out straight and true.

What's this, a 26-inch wheel?

Yep, the old man can still build a decent wheel. With a big 2.3 inch tire, this baby is ready for action.

Now I have to build the rear wheel.
