    well, improved the shifting...........

    The shifting on the Reno (rear cassette) seemed a bit slow and clunky, so decided to dive in and see what the problem might have been. Acted like a "gunked up" cable, but wasn't. Turned out to be that the bolt which holds the rear derailleur hanger was just a bit loose. So now that's fixed, but still can't ride it- must have bent just the wrong way while working on it, now it's a trip to the chiro to free my back up! Wish I could fix backs like I fix bikes!

    Boy, that hits close to home. I never had any problems with my back before I turned 50. I believe that in my case it is due to reduced muscle tone. I've been doing some supervised work strengthening my lower back and so far the results are good but you can't tell when you're looking not to have a problem whether what you're doing is a cure or whether you are just a little lucky.
