i've got a new toy. it's a cube. no, it's a cross. no, it's a re-cycle - it's new-to-me. it's also a bi-cycle.
my boss had an older cube cx cyclocross bicycle with pretty nice components for sale, and i decided (with a little help) that i should get myself something nice every now and then even though i technically don't need it (because my old mtb is still running fine; i've had that since 2010 and it was about 4-8 years old even then).
and because that bike is a bit too nice to leave outside it needs a stand. a bit of scrap wood, some screws and some time with speed square and circular saw later and we have an upcycled stand. tadaa. ugly but works.
