Stupid Impediments!

Life got in the way of a good ride once again. While I was able to ride to work, and run some errands on the Levee during lunch, I ended up not riding home.

Anyway, I got some saddle time in, and that's a good thing.

I think I need to learn some basic bike maintenance. One of my errands was to stop by the bike shop. I had just had some work done to the rear derailleur, but 3rd was slipping into 4th quite a bit. The mechanic spent less than five minutes adjusting the slightly stretched new cable, and all was good again. I should be able to do that kind of stuff on my own.

Check out the book Zinn and the Art of Bicycle Maintenance. I bought it, and it's been pretty helpful! Tuning front and rear derailleurs is a snap. A work stand will make tuning your bike much easier too.

Yeah, I think the work stand is essential unless I have a buddy to help.
