So, my fiancee did 14 miles while I was at work yesterday, and that made me want to ride. So, we got on the bike and did about 7 miles towards my work. Along the way I heard the usual noises from my bike but nothing peculiar. We get to the bike shop where I'm planning on getting a quick wheel truing and air, and come to find out I have a broken spoke. It snapped right where it threads into the hub, but stayed mostly in place, so I couldnt tell it was broken, except that it was becoming obvious that the wheel was more severely out of true that it had been in the beginning of the ride.
So, my bike stayed at the shop last night, and my fiancee and I walked home. 4.4 miles home on the more direct route. Stopped for a root beer float, so as not to burn off TOO many calories
I've decided the first thing I'm buying for myself after paying for this wedding (3 weeks from Saturday!), is a pair of bombproof wheels. I'm thinking Velocity Deep V's, color rims, probably Electric Blue, unless another blue they have matches my bike better.
