Pat and I have new toys! I will let Pat describe his new bike! It is a SOMA Extra Smooth frame, and matching fork, with a Shimano 105 drivetrain. The wheels are 105 hubs laced to Mavic Open Sport rims. The bike was built, including the wheels, by Mike Baltunis, one of the owners of M&M Cycling. He even managed to get a 105 long cage rear derailleur to reliably shift an 11-34 mountain bike cassette.
My new toy is an Ashford drum carder! I ordered it from Grandma’s Spinning Wheel in Tucson, AZ. And picked it up on my birthday! I’m working on alpaca fleece at the moment.
Too much fun!!!
