I got home at a reasonable hour today and thought I would put my bike together for a ride - but no such luck.
This last weekend I managed to bend my steel seat post. No big deal, I needed a longer one anyway. So I hit 3 bike shops until I found a Kalloy post that would fit - figured I would install it and go for a ride. As I was taking my seat off the old post, I see the seat is broke too! On the back where the bracket attaches it is broke on both sides. So no ride tonight and I gotta go saddle shopping tomorrow. No way I'm missing my weekend rides so I'll have to get something that is in stock local. I was planning to upgrade to a brooks soon but I'm not prepared now. Darn it, I wanted to ride tonight. I need a spare bike.
