Jaimes is a local resident with a passion for bikes and he is keen to set up a guided bicycle tour of Seacroft. The Seacroft Cycle Story would give people the opportunity to visit art installations across Seacroft. The installations will be created by local people in partnership with The Seacroft Story Group and the bicycles would be purchased through the Krisevac Project. The Men's Room at LS14 will service and maintain the bikes and local people like Jaimes will be the guides on the Seacroft Story Cycle. Jaimes explains his excitement at receiving the first bicycle......
Like waiting for Christmas.
Waiting for the bike to arrive is almost like the night before Christmas. (or my birthday) I can't wait to see the quality of its paint finish. (Hopefully, it will arrive safety too without damage which transported cargo often gets)
Christmas has arrived early.
With just enough bubble rap we didn't move it to our garage workshop because were excited to open the box containing the bike, so instead we built it from where it landed (the cafe area) it helped that the bike arrived so clean and void of dirt.
Order of installation and build observations.
I checked the pedals, front wheel and handlebars alignment, basket, then I checked headset bearings and lock-nut (loose) brake cables via barrel adjusters and the tyre pressures I ensured the seat height was greased and the lightning in the seat post. As I hoped, the rear sprocket is a 24-toothed version, which basically means the bike can easily ascend hills even in the hardest gear. Later on I will be performing a comprehensive check with my own personal tools.
