Need for Single Speed

part five

A gummy mess was left behind when I removed the duct tape that was holding the front derailleur cable onto the seatpost. Today I borrowed a Goo Gone substitute and bought a pack of "very fine" #00 steel wool. Bunch "O" Bikes used #000, but the kind I got was recommended for polishing "bright metals" and it worked great. You can see all the gunk that was on there before and how it's all been wiped clean with nary a scratch!

After cleaning that crap from the frame, I moved on to the crankset and polished up the big 52-tooth cog as well as I could. Then I buffed a bunch of rust off the rear wheel and adjusted the brake pads. I'm just about done with all the major cleaning that I wanted to do at this point, so tomorrow I will move on with the reassembly and conversion work. I'm excited to complete my project and get this bicycle back on the street!
