    I just returned from a whirlwind tour of giving lectures across England (at UCLAN in Preston, at Exeter and at Imperial in London). Good to get the network warmed up and firing on all cylinders!

    First commute since returning was yesterday:

    stats:

    968km/601mi
    £440/$691 total
    £0.45/km
    €0.55/km
    $1.15/mi

    goal is to catch up to the ratios of bigbenaugust:

    8093km/5029mi
    £267/$446
    3.3p/km
    4.0c/km
    8.8¢/mi

    and of Slaninar:

    12700km/7891mi
    £703/€849/$1160
    5.5p/km
    6.7c/km
    14.7¢/mi

    Nice ride!

    I love the rear triangle kickstand ... every bike should have one.

    I also miss the interlocked pavers from the continent over here in England.

    Danke!

    Aber ich spreche nur ein bisschen Deutsch.

    Ich lebte drei Jahre lang in Frankfurt, aber noch nie eine Deutschstunde.

    Ich finde Deutsch einfach zu verstehen.

    Resisting the urge to put one on the road bike. It already got the rear rack - what's the use of a fast bike if I have to carry all the stuff?

    Maybe this weekend. I'm also thinking about going to Biltema this weekend, and maybe Ikea, too. Or picking up a used bike... Unfortunately, my stuff, including my two beloved bikes, won't be here until early May. They've only just left Oakland, heading towards the Panama Canal...

    I'm sure I'll be all excited to find the metric hardware here! I think I'm going to replace some stuff with star-head bolts or some other solution so they're less likely to be stolen, which happens here pretty often according to an unfortunate colleague who is only a few weeks ahead of me.

    Oh, and I received my Personnummer this week. That should make life a lot easier!

    Grattis!

    Life will be better/easier/more connected with the Personnummer.

    Are you enrolling in "Svenskundervisning för invandrare" (SFI)?

    Yeah. I've been told it's everything from "way too intense" for a guy who thought he was busy to "it's for people who aren't literate in any language."

    I was told it could be up to twelve weeks for my cohort to form, so I may just end up enrolling in a pay-for class. That sort of thing tends to involve many more serious people.

    How did you learn Swedish while you were here?

    This morning I thought I was sure about what I was reading at Pressbyran, and pressed the button on the automated coffee machine that sent a large coffee into my small cup. FML! I made a good joke, and the guy working there laughed really hard at my joke (and not at me as a person), but I really understand the benefits of learning the language.

    I miss Pressbyrån! ... I have Swedish/Japanese keyboards on all my machines

    You'll get sorted in SFI class by doing a test at the beginning.

    If you're a single person ... you should do it as you'll meet interesting people!

    I would watch Swedish TV ... I used to watch "Ensam mamma söker"

    http://www.tv3play.se/program/ensam-mamma-soker

    and Simon & Tomas:

    have Swedish and half English

    The bearings in my left pedal went to crap today. Not shocking, as I bought these pedals in 2009 and they have graced at least 4 different bikes since. I pulled shiny new pedals from spare parts and moved the clips and straps over.

    The rear tire (which was both cheap and previously used on another bike) started falling apart, too, so I pulled a previously-used Panaracer off of the ceiling and mounted it up. I should pony up for some 700x37 WTB All-Terrains. They would help when I decide to hit the trail on the way home.

    11/03/2014 13,100 Cassette Shimano CS-HG31 € 9.00
    11/03/2014 13,100 Chain KMC X-8 € 9.00


    It is official: KMC Z72 chain is crap. Total. Lasts about 3 months (under 1500 kilometers).

    SRAM PC 870 is good, but expensive (18 euros). Now tried KMC X-8 - LBS guy says it's their top chain and should last (and it's half the price of SRAM).

    Here's my ride:
    mango bike.jpg

    This is the only picture I have of it at the moment...just after building!
    Had it for nearly a month now and so far I've had no issues with it. It's really fun to ride!

    Wow!

    Nice ride.

    I thought about those handlebars for a while and sometimes wish that I still went with them!

    Carry on!

    it's interesting.

    one can watch the chain stretch over time (i'm assuming that the rear wheel remains fixed in place).

    it gets noticeable at 700km and is quite noticeable now at 1100.

    wonder if I can make it to 1500km before adjusting the rear wheel?
