wobbly wheel blues

Our much used urban bike Old Blue was having some issues with the age of its rear wheel, especially with a wobble that seemed to be getting wobblier every minute. So Blue asked us if he could have the old rear wheel we saved from during the disposal of our Mantis mountain bike.

We thought about it, and felt the wheel wobble like a star (that's HH-47 thank you very much), and realized that the bike would, to express its extreme displeasure with the current situation, fail at a point farthest from home, public tranport, or a lock to leave it behind.

So we dug up the wheel from our old wheel collection graveyard, and Blue is now feeling quite unlike its age. We like it too.
