Spring project: tandem fix-up

My mid-90′s Trek tandem was due for some alterations. It was getting to be unridable because of the handlebar and seat setup. I would get upper back and arm numbness. I picked up new riser bars, Cloud 9 seats, cork grips, and home built wooden fenders. I’m quite pleased with the results.

Project of the day: a gentleman’s bike light

One should have a proper brass oil lamp for safe evening bicycling treks. Yes, it works quite well, throws off a nice amount of light, and stays lit at cruising speeds.
