This weekend rediscovered the joys of being off the bike, and Sunday was perfect. I have since Saturday been deep in the finer side of maintenance camp.
I’m at it with two bikes on the stand. One is a 54cm Tange rig that will utilize some idle road parts and go on the market. And, the LaBan needed the dock for a while, so I hung ‘er on the wall with a stuck seat post until it bothered me, this status, as it had stuck in a matter of months. I was able to get it out without the use of the pro tool or last resort which is: A: A 13/32 hole drilled in the center of the bottom bracket. B: 3/8″ steel rod long enough to reach the edge of the post and C: Hammer. Now you know how to get ANY seatpost out.
Being down to one bike gets me nervous. Here’s a reflector bracket that I machined:
Another interesting image, this one of some equipment that I’d like to get into using someday:
These days of all day rain yield to the sunny days being truly enjoyed. Lance loves to run across wide grassy spaces more than anything, and I let him. I play sneak-away and pedal as quick as I can. He catches me pretty quickly. Very fast dog.
Going out when it is raining this hard means walking with an umbrella. It’s big enough that he could stay out of the rain if he walked right by me, like he is supposed to. But little Lance hasn’t figured it out. He’s felt the larger drops from the edge of the umbrella, and is too afraid to get under it. Yes, this has potential to be a parable.by
