    Let's Try This Again

    I was on here back a while ago. Then I got so I wasn't riding my bike hardly ever and I was embarrassed to admit it on the forum. I'm trying this again.

    Rode the bike to work today. Nice weather, great traffic, had a very enjoyable trip. Wish work was as enjoyable... of course then they wouldn't call it work. My main bike is a fixed gear "West Point" that I have named "Stoke".

    I think that's it. My profile gives the other info if you're inquisitive.

    The antelope says "Grrrrrrrrr!"

    Yeah, I only dare to ride on Sundays anymore if it eases you any. The traffic in my tiny town is horrendous. Today when I was out WALKING, I happened to see a lone tourer pedaling by with a small trailer that seemed to be packed tightly as a 3 string bale of hay and weighing probably as much too. Although his setup appeared very smart I noticed the skinny racing tires, that didn't look right.

    I bought a mini Bell tire pump on impulse. When I got it home I was pleasantly surprised to read the instructions- mounting bracket goes under the water bottle holder so that the pump is off to the side. Good thing I was so observant, my battery takes up the whole space of the triangle effectively using both sets of mounting holes. But not anymore. Have a great day!
