This blog got a little glitchy over the past week, both on the front and back end. Luckily for you, the reader, that spared you from two really sub-par entries by me when they disappeared into the blog ether. (Maybe it was some beta-test “intellegent agent” editing component…) Anyway, just wanted to thank you for your patience if you’d been trying to get onto this part of the site unsuccessfully.
Got a couple weeks to go until the Marin Century. Should be a fun time - I’ve opted for the “traditional” route, as I’ve never ridden it. Probably will have to replace the fixed cog before then, as it seems to have gotten a tad grabby on the chain. It looks a little worn in the normal manner, and it doesn’t seem to release the chain on the return run. I’m also really liking the Brooks saddle on the longer rides, although it does seem to contact the inner parts of my thighs a bit more than I’d prefer. It’s tempting to try to carve it out like a Swallow or Swift.
Meanwhile, I’ve been grabbing some cheap miles here and there. Enjoying a windy, dry and reasonably cool summer. The above photo was from Wednesday’s commute/errands. Nuthin’ special, but everything good.
