TOO close for comfort
Riding the Wasp today at the usual warp 5 speed, I headed into town...you know..racing the traffic, decided to take some back streets, slowed down to yump a small bump in the road then
the head stem slips to the bottom of the inverted seat post thingy I'm using......not a nice position to find oneself in, I assure you. I grabbed the right brake lever with my R/hand and the post with my L/hand and somehow very gingerly slow to a holt, unclipping safely... luckily no cars to squash me... I thought I was a goner. Whose idea was that to user the seatpost thingy
, Jur..was it you?
I've got a thicker shim in now.....but it lingers in my mind........
