That said, here's what's cooking in my garage:
Upgraded Road Habanero
Blogged about here, this is virtually a complete rebuild of the bike. Everything is being replaced except the frame, stem, seatpost, and seat. This project is about 50% done; I'm waiting on my new Ritchey Carbon Comp fork to finish it up.
Upgraded Touring Habanero:
This bike has been my long distance rando companion for probably 5 years, with untold KM on it. I'm replacing the triple crank and barcon shifters with a compact double and STI brifters. I may also replace my butchered Brooks saddle. I haven't started this one yet.

Max' Cannondale has been a family staple for more than two decades. He originally bought it in the 80s, rode it into the ground, then passed it on to our sister who used it to train for her first Ironman. Then Max rode it into the ground again, before loaning it to me. After a potentially devestating handlebar failure (the failure below occurred immediately following a prolonged 50mph descent, that terminates with a stop sign at a T-intersection), I stripped the bike and retired the frame. Now I'm going to rebuild it with a carbon fork and spare components.
This Could Have Been Really Bad
Several years ago I sold the Surly Steamroller that I'd put a lot of money and time into. It was a gorgeous bike, and I sincerely regret selling it. That was a huge mistake. I planned to build a new Steamroller, but then noticed that Surly is selling pre-made single-speed Cross-Checks. For a lot less money than building my own Steamroller I can convert SS Cross-Check into a fixie Cross-Check. The bike has been ordered and should be here Friday!
