It took me a lot of running around to finish off Sharon’s Burning Man bike, but it’s finally completed. Jeremy gave me the SS cruiser and I added:
- padded saddle from CDN Tire
- cruiser bars and wire basket from LBS
- used stem from a local bike coop
- Sharon found a bell in her bike parts bin
All told we have $85 in the bike and it should last a couple years of festival going – not a bad deal. Sharon has a whole bunch of lights and other decorations for this bike, but they won’t go on until we are actually on the playa in a couple weeks.
I actually washed my Pugsley yesterday….*gasp*! It has never been washed and I was amazed how clean it looked with just a little TLC…=-) I’m going to decorate it with fun fur and lights for the burn so I figured I should get the mud and dirt off it first. I’ll also be using my Epic Designs frame bag as well as Ortlieb panniers to haul stuff on the playa. I’m not sure, but I may be the first Epic Designs equipped cyclist to rock Burning Man…!
