Is it wrong to put a Carradice Saddlebag on a modernish road bike?

gnome 03-01-14 03:03 AM

Or is it worse that I added a trailer hitch so I can tow a bike trailer with it.

Well, it more or less coincides with us going to see a presentation of Jesus Christ Superstar the night before last. It was put on by some college students, and they were good, and in particular, one girl stood out as being absolutely brilliant.

home brew lube is excellent.

Time to ride. Temp is around 12F. Stupid winter.

Doesn't it make more sense to squirt the spirits on the chain liberally...let it dry fully...then use just plain oil??

no. i tried it before.

the oil must be thinned out a lot so it doesn't go on the chain thick and then attract dirt. needs to be thin film on the chain. wd40 is too thin.

at 3 to 1 it lasts long enough between chain cleaning which for me is not very often.

OK, I will defer to the superior mind.

I just skimmed last night's addiction "dailies."

Signal:Noise ratio is not favorable. Usual end-of-month shenanigans.

The sad part is that it's still more interesting than the rest of the 41.

Sure! Extra credit if it involves boobage and pics.

I had an interesting experience last night, we went to my daughter's regional orchestra performance. These are middle school kids aged 11-14, they sounded fantastic!

Not sure why, but the vast majority of the kids (maybe 80%) were Asian.
