A Productive Weekend

Today's walk/run: Garmin sez 5.5 miles in 1:11.26

No unusual squirrel activity noted.

When we last left the little Frank Fell wheel, it had been scrubbed to within an inch of its life, and was in pieces. But, all the ancient dirt and gunk and oil (and mud wasp tubes) were gone. Note the water in the bucket.

Dissected and scrubbed
It was left to dry overnight. Then today, it got two coats of Watco Butcher Block oil. Looking much better, yes?

With two coats of oil
 Now to let it cure and dry. Then it'll be reassembled, and let the test-spins begin! My wheels don't usually tell me their names until I spin on them, so we'll see if Frank remains Frank.

  1. It looks so much happier with it's new coat of oil! Looks like all your elbow-grease will have paid off! :)
