First ride of the year.
Instead of sewing a snap on my new wallet, I went to Zale's Hometown
Pharmacy today. About two miles out and two miles back -- hardly
worth suiting up for.
It's absurd that on the ninth of January, I went out in a linen
jersey. But I should have worn two T-shirts under it instead of one;
I'd have turned back if I'd planned to stay out longer.
It was my first ride of the year, if you don't count riding my bike
home from the shop yesterday.
I was surprised that the bill included two dollars for a spoke and
eight-fifty for installing it. I must be rather oblivious not to
notice a damaged spoke. But then sometime I mount up and roll off
without even thumb-testing my tires.
I should have been more emphatic that "change the brake cables" meant
both of them. In the next paragraph I gave instructions for routing
the front cable; that, perhaps, made the "s" disappear. But I did
instruct them to look for worn parts, and the front brake is the
I now have an 8-speed chain on a six-cog cluster. The bill specifies
that the chain is "silver" -- they come in assorted colors?
I wonder what "RR" means in "BASKET SUNLT RR WIRE FOLDING STD BK"?
"STD" probably means "standard" and "BK" certainly means "black".
And I found a picture of the basket by searching for "Sunlite". My
new handlebar pads are the same brand.
"RR" could mean "rear".
