Laps…during a small window of time I had between cleaning out and re-firing the woodstove and going to my oldest son’s volleyball scrimmage. There’s still a bit of snow and ice on the main road berms, so I stuck to the neighborhood, again playing with the X bike and the Airstream.
I figure for next year, for maintenance purposes, I might start tracking the mileage separately on the X bike and LHT. I’m also going to put together a “travel kit” for the X bike: multi-tool, tube, patches, spare batteries, a few bucks and some change, band-aids, etc…
The remaining parts for the drivetrain for the Bianchi project are on their way: an 8 speed cassette and a used Shimano touring triple. The rest of the components are coming from the parts bin. I really need to post some pics. BTW: the Tektro 556 “Big Mouth” calipers are far better than I would have guessed, even with the cheapo pads that come with them. This is based on my scientific testing, which involves working up a head of steam coasting down the driveway and then locking them up.
