Saturday morning has rolled around incredibly fast. (Well, it started as morning and now it's 4 0'clock. )

My first chance to take stock this week. Except i have a busy saturday ahead of me!

This week I had the good fortune of building andrew's rohloff equipped birdy this week. Mudguards, racks and the sweetest battery operated commuting light i have ever seen; the light and motion vega. It is a seriously cool bike, it oozes practicalility in a very shmick form. Look out for photos.

Welding at tafe is going pretty well. On monday we did some oxy cutting and gouging, on thursday we were doing outside corners on 1.6 stainless steel, then some fillet brazing. I have to get practicing so as not to let all this learning go to waste. Finding the correct equipment for torches and tips for bicycle specific brazing is proving quite difficult.

Tomorrow i will be off to sydney pitt st vegetarian restaurant for a dose of vegan yum-cha, sunday ritual.mmmmm. greasy.
