Less of the writing and more of the pics please.Took delivery of my new machine last night just in time for some sunny weather and a rare day off. Riding home from the shop it was clear that it needed dialing in a bit more as would I, having not been out since I was hit. A wee spin this morning and some touches with tools has her near perfect.
Something needs to be done with the old one.
All exited I left without any mitts or a HRM, the HRM didn't bother me but I got a little sunburn on my hands from not spreading the cream enough on the bare Irish skin. I think I can make some time on Sunday or Monday, or both, for some more. Sod it, I might get up early tomorrow and enjoy a ride.
Took a look, and I did 632km in May, but that includes pool laps and some other stuff.I managed 887 km in May, ...
Flat tire (that you rode off on)?I unlocked my bike, extracted it from the rail device where it had been resting, and let the front tyre land on the ground. There was a quiet but distinctive and unfamiliar clank. I didn't think much of it. I got on the bike. Something about the front didn't seem quite right, so I got off.
The QR lever was in the expected position. Still, I opened it so it was parallel to the skewer, and tried hand-tightening the other, stubby end. (Does it have a name?) I turned it, and turned it, and turned it. And turned it. And then I closed the lever and rode off (uneventfully).
Oh well, something new to worry about.
