fixed round 2 ½

The Stronglight 47 tooth chain ring arrived and is installed. Also put on wacky handlebars with VO Dia-compe reverse brake levers, VO leather covered half toe clips, bottle cage and elk hide bar covers. I was pretty leary about installing the leather handlebar covers but the elk hide makes it fairly easy. It is super stretchy and not hard to work with. The only mistakes I made were at the tight radius bends when the holes in the leather didn't line up well so I made some bad stitches but found them a couple stitches later and re-stitched it correctly and all was well. I remember lacing a pair of moccasins in scouts and this really reminded me of it.
