I'd like to tell you that the big boxes arrived, but that would be better than reality. Good thing we're not anxious.
I checked the tracking numbers, one shows shipment on the expected date, but nothing else. The other must have a typo because it doesn't work. Not a big deal, those post office tracking numbers aren't too useful anyway.
The seat and tubes arrived, and the garage door opener. So we have another project to get done.
I should measure the tire diameter for interest. Here it is.
The Michelin Gazelle 2.5-17 inch tires measure 21-3/4 inches in diameter - unmounted.
What about tire weight?
A pair of them weighs 9 pounds 9 ounces.
And the seat:
Cloud 9 - 2 pounds 1 ounce.
And the tire tube:
A pair of Kenda tubes are 1 pound 3 ounces.

there is a barcode sticker on the bead which I understand is the light side of the tire to go next to the valve stem
There are actually a bunch more things on the sidewall that don't look useful so I'll skip typing them all in. Amazing amount of info.
