    ^ Ian, with gearing that low (what is that? 0.75:1?) you could climb walls!

    Might be a couple of weeks before it arrives. Surprisingly enough, the shop I've been working through has been crazy busy and selling and repairing bikes! We're all locked down and bicycle sales are up!

    Oh, how exciting! Congrats on the new acquisition.

    Here in Germany bike shops were open for emergency repair service all during the big lockdown and were the first shops allowed to open at the beginning of May. Somehow Corona has reminded everyone here of the bikes in their garage and the bike trails are fuller than ever. And the bike business, which has been in an upswing anyway, is really booming. Unfortunately the boom hasn't brought the prices down for anything of quality.

    Looking forward to pictures of your new bike and your outings!

    We had an unusually strong wind event last Saturday; saw several tipping-over bicycles like this on my bike ride Sunday morning:

    BTW: the building is the home of Liberty Media, among other things, the owner of the Formula 1 racing series.

    The bicycle parking at a local hospital.
    The sign says: "Max parking 15 minutes and only for the transport of patients" >:)
