New toys, part 1
So the trainer came in yesterday and I was a little too lazy to put it together. Well, not exactly. The trainer is all put together and ready to go, but I haven't replaced the rear skewer on the Raleigh to get it ready to use. Hopefully I'll get to that tomorrow, so I can start playing. Still waiting on the rest of the order (rollers, balancer for the front wheel for the trainer, different balancer for the rollers) to show up, which might be tomorrow. We'll see.
I'm primarily a utility cyclist, commuting and shopping as much as possible by bike. I want to do some tours, and have done a few sprint triathlons. In this blog I tend to ramble on about whatever part of the cycling life catches my fancy. I have some seriou retro-grouch tendencies, and lean towards older steel bikes with tried-and-true parts.
