I found a new bike shop in downtown Louisville today. It’s a short walk (or bike ride) from my office. I brought my bike there, and got a new rear wheel installed. If this doesn’t fix the spoke breaking issue, I’ll get very angry.
After driving home, I made a quick trip to the grocery store on the bike, in the rain. I didn’t mind getting wet, and the fenders prevented dirty road-water from flying into my face.
I’ll be riding to work in the morning, barring anything else breaking. There is the potential for some nasty weather, I don’t mind rain and lightning, but I hope the wind isn’t too strong.
