A Few Months Is All It "Brakes"

I've always said, you can never skimp on brakes; be it a car, a wagon, or a bike. It took a few months (7 months) with the bike budget, but I finally got what I wanted. Just waiting for the original brakes to give up the ghost. 🤓

You guys are right ! I'm going to change them out this weekend. I've always been the type that doesn't like to fix what isn't broke, but that doesn't count when it comes to brakes (what was I thinking ?).
