When I moved, I sold my Roubaix, and kept my Globe. I've never ridden the Globe much; it was a good grocery bike back in the old neighborhood.
At any rate, somewhere along the line, I removed my cyclometer from the Globe. Now that I'm back on the bike, I wanted to put it back on. Found it readily enough, surprisingly, since I actually put it where I wouldn't forget it, and I actually found it, which almost never is the case with this strategy.
Now here's the problem. The Cateye MITY 8, which I have right here in my hand, doesn't fit on the bracket on the bike! Huh??? WTF???
It HAS to be the right cyclometer - but it isn't. It's the one I used on my Roubaix. And of course, it doesn't fit the bracket I have on the bike.
So, now I have a wired bracket but no cyclometer. I've searched high and low but think I must have lost the Globe's cyclometer after all. The only way to be sure is to buy another one, so that the original one will suddenly appear. That's how it usually works for me.
I'm getting ready to ride today, and have to face the horror of not knowing how slowly I'm going, or how far I didn't ride. I'll have to simply ride for the pleasure of riding.
I'm not sure if I can take it.
