    In the interests of efficiency, I took the offending wheel into an LBS, where they seconded the new rim tape option. I had them mount the tire for me while I was there, so we have a working bike...

    The new front tire has never been ridden on... The tube hasn't stayed inflated long enough! Might make sense to check if it has any rough bits from the factory, though. Thanks

    Back in Canada to visit my parents. Mum has late stage Alzheimer's. I don't know how my dad does it. Two days in and I'm being as outwardly positive as I can, but I just want to scream

    Lots of crud in the air again today, including some construction grit that got in my eyes, so another slow ride. Not quite as relaxing as yesterday's because the traffic was much worse. Sunny and a...

    Bad air today, so I left early and rode slowly. Got to work feeling remarkably relaxed. I think I need to do that more often.

    Thanks, Steve... It sucks, especially since she had started to ride it a lot more recently. By the way, long time no see! Hope Kyoto's still treating you well.

    Thanks! I bought it after I got my first job, even though I couldn't really afford it... Probably wasn't the best financial decision, but in the long run it has been worth every penny.
