joyful joyful

went on a ride after dialing in my bike. I LOVE riding my bike when everything is working and no annoying creaks/noises. I can focus just on riding

I will have a joyful ride this morning. I detailed my Lemond Tourmalet yesterday afternoon. It is clean and shiny, freshly lubed and new tires. I am going to be fast

Cool story! Can you share what chain lube you use? Must be special!

I'm happy today too. Yesterday I found the dreaded frayed cable in the shifter. The ride on Thursday was not joyful, but luckily I found the problem before it broke off in there. I wiped the bike down too, so it'll be much faster today.

I rode my Kross yesterday, and ended up almost axle deep where clay-water run off had accumulated in a dip on a track. The half-clay coating didn't seem to slow me down for the rest of the day.
