Today was my 5th ride of the year - 15.2 miles @ 13.8 mph.
Today lacked the same level of enjoyment as the previous 4 rides. It was better than not being on the bike but not by a whole lot. I had trouble with my new saddle hieght as it seemed to cut into my leg strength I may lower it about 1/8 of an inch as a resuylt. FOr some reason my front brake got slightly off center and I was riding the whole ride with the right pad rubbing - what an annoying sound! Finally, there was a little bit of a head wind going out so it made that streach tougher while I was still warming up. Overall the ride was ok, but not what I was looking for. Oh well, there is always the next ride.
That makes 96.3 miles down and 1903.7 to go.
Anyone know how to keep the brakes from twisting to the left? It was like the brake line was pushing the caliper down not sure what to do about that. I wondered if it could have to do with the fact that the bike is now almost 100 mile old and things are loosening up. I"ve never had this problem on any other bike I've ever owned.
Just spinning the wheels in western Maryland.
