for some reason the bottom half of my headset on my IRO decided to fall apart, guess it was just some bad bearings or something, so I had to take it into the shop (I lack the tools and the know-how for the moment to try and install new bearings myself)
so I had to ride my old roadie into work (haven't touched it since I got the IRO) I found it extremely difficult to ride at first! It was such a weird feeling, it ended up taking me almost 10 minutes longer to get into work! I know that part of this is due to quality of parts but man was it annoying, I was so frustrated by the whole thing that I spent the first two hours of work planning on how to convert it, gotta save up for a ENO hub for the rear, make it into a "rain bike" or something .... yeah thats my excuse.....
now I just have to convince my wife
*off to go do my taxes so I can spend the refund on my new project*
