A Little Bike Maintenance

by on February 1, 2014

The amount of salt dumped on Maryland roads is quite astonishing.  Streets are white.  Cars are white.  Today as the weather is warming up some and it is dry, there is a white dust in the air making it look like there is a light fog along the roadways.  A bunch of that salt coated the fixie and I needed to get it cleaned off.  Salt and steel frames just don’t go well together.  While I was washing it off, I discovered that the rear wheel was not turning properly and a couple of other minor things needed to be adjusted.  The fixie is now all tuned up and ready to roll.

I also changed the saddle on the trainer.  That required a new saddle clamp.

Both jobs were quite typical.  They took longer than expected and required a trip to the bike shop.
