Finishing Touches on Body, Testing the Subframe

(18 days until the 2012 WHPSC)

"Dueling Banjos", er, uh, "Dueling Air Files" with Pat and Dad

Couple final spots before primer

As always, Annie is unimpressed

Taking the subframe for a test spin. We were concerned about the clearance between my leg and the derailleur.

Turns out, the derailleur clearance is no problem, but there's even less room for handlebars/stem that we originally thought. Suddenly, the flat stem of the Varna makes a lot of sense ;-)
