Yes, missed a few days posting, but not the rides. Things have been very, very busy at the shop, as usually happens prior to Labor Day. The new bike survived Thursday’s ride through the park just fine, although it still hadn’t been properly fine-tuned, but that bike is so awesome that it rides amazingly-well even if the front derailleur is set a quarter inch too high and the battery is rattling around inside the seat tube, making quite a racket.
It’s all good now. I took care of those items on Thursday at the shop, and it was almost eerily-silent on the ride home.
If only it was as easy to work on people as it is (sometimes) on bikes. Kevin’s still having kidney issues, missing Thursday’s ride for another “look inside” procedure, and is in a bit of pain from yet-another stent that’s been installed to prevent scarring. Hopefully he’ll be able to get in a good ride Sunday, or at least Monday.
Two days off in a row. Thinking I need that about now! –Mike–
