Back Again!

Back in the saddle today for what might as well be the first time in almost 2 years. Real life (job, family, etc.) took priority while the bikes sat collecting dust in the garage. Managed to gain...

I like the belt drive, too. I did destroy a couple of aluminum rear pulleys on my Alfine 8, though. Replacements parts are easy for me to get; I source them through Spot Brand Bicycles...

Replacing Bottom Bracket

The BB in my trusty Schwinn hybrid is starting to creak and groan.
