Unlike Humpty Dumpty, it's put back together.

Yesterday, I got the frame back from the powder coating shop and I began reassembly by installing a new headset. Today, I reassembled the rest of the bike. Most of these components were already on the bike before powder-coating, so it all went back together without any trouble.


Here's a summary of the components I have on the bike at this time:

I've ridden the bike a lot with most of these components, but the handlebars and pedals are new—tomorrow afternoon I've got a ride in mind to see how everything feels.
