Hemp cord wrap

Nothing worse than having to rewrap your bars because electrical tape won't holed its grip.  I prefer to use hemp cord shellacked into place.  It doesn't slip and it last longer than electrical tape.

Felt F5

This felt F5 made its way into the shop tonight after the cable broke off inside the shifter.  Justin from HomeGrown Emergency/ productions made a guest appearance staring as shifter holder.  The position of the cable end made it difficult to work out, but as Justin put it " There was just a lot of wiggling and jiggling to get it in the right position".  After said wiggling and jiggling out came the cable head, and in went the new one inch housing.  A last minute repair before before we head north to the woods of Leota.  Thanks to John from Royal Oak for the business, enjoy the ride.
