    LOL! About 15 to 20 minutes per bike and the peace and quiet I have in the basement while engaging in my voodoo chain maintenance is priceless. If I could find a slower method, I might even try it!

    The temperature has gone all the way up to 3 at noontime but the wind chill is -10. It is a nice sunny day, though. Better than the grey clouds that usually settle in from mid November to April.
