Just about time to retire the Redline Junior

redline junior and dog, originally uploaded by BikeTinker.

Bike is sold, and soon will have a new home with a new kid!

The kid has had this bike since he was five, and the seatpost is about six inches past the min insertion mark. There’s still about four inches in the frame, and he’s not racing it, so I’m not worried.

It’s a big jump from a 20″ (ISO 451) tire to a 700c, but that’s what we’re doing.

Pictures to follow. I’d do it now, but it’s dark and cold. Plus I forgot to buy headset spacers and mountain brake cables when I bought the shorty stem for the new bike.
