Why? Because I broke the golden rule of trying to wrench the night before and ended with a huge mechanical issue (no rear brake). I'm hoping it's a wonky lever and not the disc brake caliper.
Well, it was probably for the best ... those kinds of conditions don't make for good centuries. I think all the brevets scheduled for this coming weekend here in Alberta have been cancelled because of bad weather conditions (snow, ice, high winds, etc.). There are safety issues to think about. Do you have another one coming up in a warmer month?
