Let the Warm Up Begin

by on April 17, 2014

After the obligatory grumbling about the cold, 7 riders pushed off this morning from the Rusty Bridge just as orange color showed in the sky.  It was 3° warmer than yesterday.  Every rider this morning will be riding the Flèche in 9 days.  That meant we talked Flèche among other topics.  It was a gentle ride, no one really pushing hard content with the camaraderie and simply being out in that pretty early morning light.

I again rode the Fixie.  At one point it felt as though the rear of the bike was loose.  I could find nothing wrong when I stopped, although I suspect the bearings in my rear wheel need work and there may be a little play.  I recently had work done on the front hub where a piece had broken.  I’ll need to get this checked out.  I wouldn’t be surprised to find that the rear hub is doing what the front hub did.  Great.  I could be without a bike at all.

I’ve been looking at the possibility of purchasing a new bike.  If that moves forward, I’ll chronicle the process here, because it will be interesting.
