Well, the cranks are finally in the same country as the rest of the bike so, though the post will take a few more days to get them to us, we decided we'd build the rest of the bike up to get it ready for the last steps - cranks and fit.
For an intro to what's happening here, see the first and second episodes.
Venue is the Soon Watt/Orbea shop on Changi Road. In attendance: Master of Ceremonies Mave Goh, Dr Ahmad and his assistant Bob, myself and Mrs me (proud parents).
