Haven't ridden in a couple days

Between having to completely rearrange my storage locker and it raining like crazy, I haven't been able to ride for a couple days.

So I've been imagining a redesign of the rear brakes on Eagle. Well, more specifically, the 1 into 2 cable splitter that lets one cable actuate both rear brakes. The original design has proven problematic and I've been almost completely without rear brakes.

Hopefully the downpours will stop and I'll get those pedals spinning again real soon... To the bike shop to get parts for me rear brake revamp!

I've been fairly lucky as far as rain goes but our summer heat and humidity have already moved in. I swear, the older I get, the hotter it gets.
