    swapped my hybrid tires

    I'm tweaking 3 bikes so I can switch off. On the hyrbrid I just swapped the tires. These are harder smoother and have reflective sidewalls. I got a good look at my brake pads and boy did they have embedded metal chips and pretty bad scoring, so I replaced them. I cleaned and adjusted the brakes and brake cables. Amazing how simple maintenance can improve performance. Especially just cleaning the moving parts.

    Good Job.

    It snowed today, so I spent an hour moving a rack & pannier from my Cyclocross bike to my Hybred.

    I enjoy making these improvements too.

    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
