Sekai progress

No progress on the Sekai, due to slow shippers! Ordered a new set of mustache handlebars over a week ago and am still waiting. Boo. Though UPS is saying tomorrow.

Polished up a Suntour VX-S touring derailleur and bought new jockey wheels for it from Velo Orange. Those got here quickly, but they are too big, and thus useless. Boo.
I did purchase a wheelset off of eBay --- an older pair with Deore hubs and Ritchey Vantage rims. The original wheels had bolt on (no skewers) hubs. And the spokes were a bit rusty. They would have worked, sure. But the new wheelset is 1.5 pounds lighter.
