As it is Friday, I hope all of you will be out enjoying the weekend soon! I have a few bike related plans - the District is finally getting its own saddle and I plan to do a decent amount of work on the Nishiki Ultimate now that I finally have a stem.

The Takhion is also most likely coming back from the welder, and all that one needs is a wheelset and a cog before it's good to ride. It'll be velodrome only, mostly because I want to ride it but not destroy it in the process. It's currently at the welder because it seems like there was a lot of stress put on the handlebars at some point in its life, and one side cracked during the test ride. Poor bike :/.
Both the Nishiki and the Takhion will also need saddles and pedals, but those are easy and swappable.
I'm seriously considering backing a really cool Kickstarter frame jig that was linked via Reddit. Check this out:

Also, I know that there are a lot of things that show up on Kickstarter. I only give attention to and or back those that I feel are innovative and useful, I promise!
Happy Friday everyone! Go ride a bike!
