Last night I repaired the flat on Jamis. It was a thorn. A tiny little thing!
I pulled it out, and here it is, in toto...
Much ado, and all that.
I also did the Brilliant Solution to the LED Blinky Problem on the Schwinn.
First, I found a dowel, cut it to size, and then drilled it. From both ends. On the trusty Harbour Freight Drill Press.
I then ran the drill through it a couple more times to get the two holes to line up. Then I FORCED the screw through.
Next, I threaded on the LED blinky and put it on the Twofish Lockblock. Oh no, where is the strap to hold it on?
Looks fairly great, I must say. Maybe a little varnish on the dowel would pretty it up. Or, paint it black!
This week I've 34.8 miles on Jamis, and around 10 on the Schwinn.
I was reading up on how to clean synthetic fabrics today, as my Headsweat has a bit of an odour, more reminiscent of sweat than head. You wouldn't believe the rude (and humourous) things people say to each other on Bikeforums.net on the topic of smelly bicycling clothes!
The Angriest Pharmacist rants about bicyclists. A VERY partial quote, edited for language:
You will STOP at STOP SIGNS. You will STOP at RED LIGHTS. You will SIGNAL when TURNING. You will ride your bike in the BICYCLE LANE [far right - not against traffic] or (preferably) on the f[***]ing sidewalk (where allowed by law). When you hug the f[***]ing curb, like you love to do, I can’t tell whether it’s safe to pass or I should just door-check you as I blow by.I read several of the pharmacist and medical rant blogs. My favorite is The Angry Pharmacist, no relation (that I know of) to the previously quoted gentleman, except he (she?) is linked to there. Whew, that sentence got out of control!
