I put a new tyre on my rear wheel. 38 on the back, 35 on the front, effectively mulletising the bike

I installed what I hope to be a better cell phone holder, a Q Mount. Fortunately, I get spacers on hand 'cause it came with nothing...

Swap front and back and you're good to go for another few thousand km!

Rode the old girl

In the rain (off and on) six miles (did some climbing.) we both got wet and tire-d.

End up doing about four today. An aluminum hybrid with steel forks seems more attractive daily. 😂

My TREK FX7000

Gave my Trek a rebuild after the rainy season and installed a new Deore crankset.

Took it for a ride to dial it in.

Love the bare-metal look with the black accents! It looks like it's up to no good even just sitting there. :-)

I had fenders installed on my Giant Escape. Since I have the new Sirrus 6, I thought I would use my Giant Escape as my rain bike (if it ever rains in Los Angeles again).

Installed a set of Shimano BL-R780 brake levers on my 2005 Cypress. Much better than the OG Tekros. Still waiting on the Deore v brakes to show up.

Rode Pack Mule

For approximately 30 minutes; did some climbing. Was fun. Glad the old bike is still in good working condition. Steel is real, kids.

Deore v brakes showed up. Installed on my Cypress. Massively improved over the ancient Tekros that came with the bike. Hopefully don't overslept so I can go for my ride tomorrow.

New shifters showed up. Just Altus 3x8 trigger shifters. Put those on while I wait for the new rear wheel.

I replaced the disc brake pads on my 2020 Sirrus 3.0. I was nervous about the task since I'd never done it before, but it was easier than I could have imagined!

In getting ready to head to Jekyll Island for the week I found that Mrs. Downesatter's LiteSpeed Cheerohala City bike had a flat front tire. Didn't have a lot of time to find out what was the cause other than maybe the storage in the garage the past month in FL caused it to pop Anyway changed out the tube in like 10 minutes using the Tyre_Glider. Best invention for an old guy like me with weak hands. Check them out... not the hands... https://tyreglider.co.uk

New Rear wheel mavic with deore hub went on today. Put on a shimano 8 speed cassette. My old Cypress is coming along slowly but surely. Stem developed some play I can't tighten out so stem is next.

I put new Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires on my Sirrus 3.0. They're some tough tires to stretch over the wheels! YouTube videos helped a lot and made it much easier. I went with 35mm tires in place of the stock 32mm Specialized Road Sports. I had wanted 38mm but there were none is stock that I could find, but the 35's look good on the bike. Can't wait to try them out later!

Today: Swapped the longish 170mm factory FSA crankset on my larger 7.6 out for a much more suitable 165mm Sinz that I picked up used:



Earlier: Did the same for my smaller 7.6, only with a new, 165mm Shimano Tiagra crankset and BBR60 bottom bracket:




The smaller 7.6 also got treated to a nice (albeit heavy AF) OHM adjustable stem for more suitable geometry and better handling:






(Still fine tuning the position as I ride; this isn't yet the final position.)

I replaced the rear tyre on my Canyon RoadLite 9LTD. I have been running schwalbe G-One Speeds and love them. This one was down to the casing after a little over 4K miles on it. I generally hate replacing tyres or tubes as at my age I have little strength in my hands. But with a tyre-glider it made the job easy and in less than 10 minutes.
