I wasn’t planning on riding to work today, but with the copious amounts of calories consumed over the weekend, I rearranged my week a bit, and rode to work today.
Nermal’s bottom bracket has been a bit loose recently, and had been submerged in mud not long ago. On the ride in this morning the cranks were especially loose, and I was having shifting issues. I made it in to work, but immediately took my bike down to the shop.
Well, the bottom bracket is destroyed. The shifting issue was just a derailleur adjustment. Oh, and after 2500 miles, the chain is worn.
I really didn’t want to spend more money on this bike. I plan to replace it with a Surly LHT, but I don’t have the money for that now.
I had to catch a ride home from a co-worker, and I really do need to drive the next two days, but I hope to ride on Thursday and Friday.
