Today was one of those picture perfect 10 best days of the year. Temp 70, winds under 5 and bright blue skies. You couldn't ask for a better pedal day. Even the cars were friendly.
Let's hope the Weather Gods keep smiling.
A bit chilly this morning. I could have used a pair of gloves. Nice and warm for the ride home. My new Cygolite works great now that dawn is later. The staff likes when I bike to work as I always bring DD Munchkins.
I have been a high roller the last few years and decided to check my chains for wear. It was no surprise to learn my ICE T was well worn. It's been my bike of choice this year. The Stratus has a lot of miles with 2013 being it's big year. I was a bit surprised with the Greenway. it only has 3500 miles. All chains show greater than 75% wear. I have to question the accuracy of the tool. Either way I decided to replace all 3 bents. 9 chains and 4 cassettes later I now have peace of mind.
I also had a broken rear fender on both the Greenway and ICE T. Thanks to PlanetBike's honorable service I got the Greenway fender under warranty. I found a nice SKS fender set for a folder that worked great as a replacement on my T.
All is good again.
Not here in my Garden State. After that long harsh Winter I was longing for some hot weather. Did anyone tell the Weather God's it's August? I don't think we have had more than a handful of days above 85. Mind you I"m not complaining as the weather has been absolutely gorgeous. Early morning temps 60 climbing into to the high 70's with light winds under 10 mph. Bright sunshine and no humidity. You couldn't ask for nicer weather and what better way to enjoy it than by the seat of a bicycle.
