I just received this Stronglight crankset. Swapping out my crankset to a 144BCD allows much more opportunity to play around with my chainring tooth count. This one is 49 which brings me to 49/16. We'll see how this goes... Thanks @iamskitts for the early birthday present!
I got a Godfather sticker for helping out at the 27th annual (this may not be accurate) BattleOfTheGats hosted by @ottawafixedgear and @aerosaur. I wasn't able to race this year because I'm a brittle old man but I still had a ton of fun being a volunteer. But the real question is, where do I put this sticker?

In 1987, Koichi Yamaguchi came to the United States and founded his own bicycle building company, Yamaguchi Bicycles, based in Rifle, Colorado. He began working closely with the US Cycling Federation as the National Team Mechanic in 1988 and, in 1989, his projects included prototype frames for the US National Cycling Team. That same year, Koichi became the official framebuilder for the United States Olympic Cycling Team. #Yamaguchi#TrueTemper#1993
