    From beautiful downtown Leander, the Northern edge of the Texas Hill Country

    Retired in Austin, TX, settled in Leander, not too long a trip if I want the "Big City" life, again. I could get used to doing nothing, with a little time.

    I overhauled a Raleigh Sport 3, changed tires/tubes, tightened up the spokes on the original wheels, put new grips on, replaced the (stupid plastic) pulley that old Raleighs use for the fulcrum on the 3 speed hub. Then the cable frayed, so I replaced that, and then the brake pads, and then the bearings in the wheels began to go, and I didn't want to repair them (ALL STEEL! Yes, and you are proud of that?)

    So I ordered up a heavier duty bike to see if it would be more reliable, more comfortable, more fun, more useful (not necessarily in that order). I like to be a bit different, so I ordered an ACID GREEN Torker Cargo-T. (If the cage drivers miss that, then they are not trying. Yeah, I know.)

    Doctor diagnosed Arthritis of the lower back, shoulders, hips, etc, so basically I'm riddled with it. Need to get back into exercise. Swimming or bicycling, so hows the water?

    How about a Cadillac Fleetwood?
