looking forward to better weather and a different bike
I may not get another full week in until August but I'm looking forward to getting the tire mounted on my new wheel for the converted hybrid and commuting on it again. Maybe 1 or 2 days the 2nd week of July. From what I recall, it is fairly light and faster than the old steel Varsity I've been using this past month. I'm hoping the new 36 spoke wheel will be able to handle the rigors of a few days per week commuting.
I decided not to go for the mint '80s "World" I found. I've goo too much steel in my basement right now. If I get another bike it's gonna have to be a brand new road machine for speed or an older chromoly framed 12-speed
Trying to figure what what to use for long summer rides to the beach on the cape. I'm torn between stripping down my LeTour, even getting rid of the racks, just for lighter faster fun. But I do so love to carry stuff like lunch, drinks, suit & towel, and casual clothes for the raw bar at the Beach Comber. If I ride the LeTour again I'm gonna have to check out the creaking and check the BB and pedals, etc. Good activity for vacation week.
cleaned up the Varsity and put it in the basement
