Tuned and ready…sort of.

Okay. So my winter bike is all tuned up and I even upgraded the rear wheel from a 3-speed to an 8-speed internal. At the first sight of snow the studded snow tires go on it. This will be the third Buffalo winter with this bike (last year was trying to say the least), and it of course replaces my beloved Mule which was nicked from my ex-wife’s garage a few years ago. At any rate, the bike seems ready (just had the new rear wheel and internal 8-speeed put on today and love it) but I’m not sure I am. Last Winter was exhausting. Hopefully this one will be a bit milder.

Things that can be carried on a bike (#606)…

Forty-one red bricks…

Ok, so I have to say a bit about this. You likely noticed that the bricks are not strapped down. I didn’t have to “ride” very far with these bricks, just about 4 houses away…actually I walked the bike. But hey, the bike still carried the bricks. They were curb-side and I am a sucker for free bricks…one can never have enough bricks. I was riding down the street when I spotted them, so I loaded them up and walked the bike home. I do believe I could have ridden the bike if they were propperly strapped down, but it would have been heavy. But this was an easy way to get all the bricks to my house in one trip.
