    Geek at the beach

    Or should I say Fred?

    (yeah, that's my bike rental for the week.. even mounted my Edge 305)



    Didn't think to bring any tools. The seat tilts down and is uncomfortable. I hold the bars on the narrow straight edge near the stem. With a few tools I'd fix the seat and flip the bars and have semi drops on it.

    Ah, what a life!

    Put a big wicker basket on it and it looks like my wife's Jamis Earth Cruiser. She puts miles on it.

    The Garmin should make up for the other low-tech features on this bike

    Enjoy the rides!

    pop by the rental office and see if they can adjust the seat for you.

    I probably will at some point. They don't open until 1000 and I like to ride early in the morning before the heat gets up too much. The shop is about 5.5 miles up the road.

    I should've brought my spare saddle to put on it for the week.

    Better yet... a hitch on the car so I could bring my spare bike... except I'm not crazy about having it in this salt air environment.

    That bike lacks something so I hope you are wearing thick soled shoes for when you want to stop for coffee

    Streamers for the handlebars. That's what it needs. Would go well with the wicker basket suggestion above. But that would make the Garmin look out of place, don't ya think?

    The cable keeps the honest people from borrowing the bike.

    I hate coaster brakes. I don't think they're safe.

    It's flat here. And they beat no brakes at all. (don't ask me how I know)
