So over the weekend I bolted all the bits back on including the mudguards, and then I rocked into the build of a simple but effective rack. This was made out of some 3/8th 4130 tubes that I got from the lovely Lianne from Aviation and Performance Parts. I have also ordered the tubes for my stem that I am going to make soon.

|Can't get much simpler than that, I am pretty happy with it although it probably needs a bit more bracing. I will add that if it breaks|
I have ridden it all this week so far, and apart from a lingering fear that the fork will break and I will smash my face into the tarmac, it is totally sweet.
In other news, we have bought two new Burmese kittens to replace one of our cats that died, they are pretty cute/awesome;
The ging runs up to you and flops down on his back so you can scratch his tummy just like a dog, and the brown one likes lying on my shoulders at all times, and purrs like a mad wee chainsaw when he does.
We need some names now, any suggestions welcome..
