Ooops.

I was doing some setup on my Scattante (Performance Bike Shop) R-650, including installing bottle cages, the Garmin GPS mount, and the Cateye Micro wireless computer. Things were going smoothly, when I goofed up....

When I was putting the sensor on the front fork, I loosely attached the two zip ties so I could position the sensor and magnet properly with some fine adjustments when I noticed that I had zipped one of the ties around the spoke....

Oops.

Fortunately, it was still loose, so I snipped it right in front of the latch, removed the tail end, and zipped it back up (without the spoke attachment this time), and was good as new, but I definitely had a bonehead moment there.

It's not the first bone-headed move I've ever made (and it won't be the last).....

Sometimes I think this is my theme song.....
