    Ok, I did a full inspection and made some adjustments to the bike. Got my wife to take a short spin and when she came back she had a big smile on her face. I think it might work out.

    Hey everyone,

    It's been a while since I've checked in. I was a regular commuter back in 2008 & 2009, but went through some nasty personal stuff in 2010 and stopped riding for a few years (even...

    Well, the auction went well. I told the auction sponsor that the bidding shouldn't start any higher than $40. Someone eventually paid $100 for it. I would feel bad about that if the money weren't...

    I've decided to donate the bike to a charity auction rather than part it out. The money from the winning bid will go to buy toys for less fortunate children. I plan to get the bike ready tonight. The...

    I'm a part-time IKEA employee and I picked up my bike last night. I appreciate the gift, but I'm probably just going to cannibalize this thing.

    Nice brisk commute this morning with temps in the mid 30s. I tied a scrap of cloth around my nose, mouth, chin, and ears to keep them from getting too cold. Nice clear commute, not much traffic.

    I'll make a fairly off-the-wall recommendation. Get a restaurant-style squeeze bottle. Put saran wrap between the top of the bottle and the cap. Then, when you want to use it, just unscrew the cap...

    Low 60's this morning. Uneventful ride, but enjoyable. I hope the commute home is just as nice. I may take the local hike and bike trail instead of the paved road home. Variety is always nice.

    Nice clear morning. I decided to try the train this morning. It's only been running two days, so I was curious. It's alright I suppose. Still has some things that need to be worked out I think.

    I bought a Topeak Explorer rear rack. I still don't have any fenders, but the missus worries too much for me to ride in much rain. The rack has a closed bottom, so even riding on wet streets I...
