a few bike repairs

Bikes will go a long time without needing any repairs, and can often be ridden for years even when out of adjustment. But there are adjustments, and there are ADJUSTMENTS, and we did a few of the latter this week. the Bert got a rear wheel tuning, it was nearly destroyed from a few days of commuting on our fine Montreal streets. (It's back to old blue for commuting).

Speaking of Old Blue, our converted mtn-to-city bike, we adjusted it's headset and (finally) changed the front brake pads. Front brakes are very, very important. Nothing else is as important as the front brake.

We think we'll oil the chains and call it a night.

Bonne soirée!
