Tim met up with me the other day and dropped of some tires to try on the Big Dummy. I’ve had a lot of flat tires with the old ones. I haven’t put them on yet. We’ll see how that goes.
Tim was going to loan me some tires he had to try on the new bike. Due to mis-communication, he didn’t bring them. It’ll have to wait a week. He’s on a short bike tour right now. I’m leaving Saturday morning for a trip to San Diego.
I stopped by the bike shop today after work. I ordered a new seatpost for the new bike. It’s not a two-bolt like I wanted, but it’s a third of the cost. I’m also skipping the new seatpost clamp. I’ve also decided to stick with the existing saddle for a while. We’ll see how that works out too.
I also bought two bottle cages. I only had one on the new bike. I’ll now have two, and can put yet another on the Big Dummy.
I still need focus in my life. That seems hard to do with this trip to San Diego (work related, but gonna enjoy it anyway), and other stuff going on. My earlier post about making my house livable is all about being able to be home and enjoy myself. That will make focusing easier.
I’m not setting any bicycling goals for the time being. I’m not setting any weight goals. I want to pull things together. I also need to remember to enjoy where I’m at now rather than worry about where I may be later.
