Default Riding

Today the wind hasn't picked up to "Oh my God" yet so I will take a ride and test out my shifting on the Eddy Merckx. The only thing I'm worried about is overshifting in the big ring and throwing the chain off.

The chain now has three quick links in it and that isn't a good omen but we'll see. At least there is a bicycle shop on the way back where I can get a new chain if necessary. And since I have another waxed chain when I get back I will install that on my Eddy and put the new Connex on the Airborne after cleaning and waxing it. I'm sure there must be a proper quick link in the Connex box. Those are reusable forever. Unlike the KMC or PNC quick links which are supposed to be one installation only.
