Wow, today has been a whirlwind. I started the day with a rainy but pleasant RCCS ride. Turnout for the ride wasn’t great, but the weather had something to do with that. After putting about 27 miles on my new LHT and enjoying good coffee from several establishments, I had to high-tail it home.
After changing out of my soggy clothes, and taking a hot shower to warm up, I drove to Bluegrass Bicycle to attend another session of the Park Tool School. I’ve been a lousy bike mechanic, and I’m hoping to improve that. Today, among other things, we changed a brake cable.
Once I got home, I spent several hours working on my daughter’s bike. I replaced the rear brake cable, trued the wheels, fixed the fender alignment, installed a new rack, and raised the handlebars.
I can see that I’m going to spend money on tools to work on bikes now, but I will eventually save money.
