Usually I love winter but this time it's just not what it used to be for some reason. The lack of snowmobiling probably covers about 90% of that reason, but hey. The cold, the coat and boots, the shoveling... bleh.
I get so depressed whenever I go downstairs. I see my bike scattered around the room in so many pieces, sigh, and turn around. That or I just open the boxes and look at the parts wishing I could be riding, or something. Go back upstairs and I see my car just sitting there as unused as my bike. Can't do anything with it until it gets warm, either (This is turning out waay more emo than intended)
At least I've got some stuff to look foreword to.
Finally getting rid of some of the original parts. Just waiting on a friend to bring me wheels and then I can start getting it together. I cannot wait for that.
Question #1: Levers. How much difference am I going to notice with some different ones? Any recommendations on a budget of, say, $20-$30? I currently have Shimano Rapidfire's, is it worth upgrading?
Question #2: Brake cables, I'll assume I should do this anyway. What to get? Is it was simple as taking the old ones out and putting the new in?
