Bought some b'day presents for myself.

First I got the tires yesterday. 26x2.1 Specialized Resolutions.

Today, knowing that I needed a new drivetrain pretty badly. Felt like a birthday is a good reason for change so for the first time in a few years one of my bikes has a deraillieur on it. (Chain guide is on order.)

Congrats Sir Smashy

Side note... are you having any trouble with your Juicy 7's rubbing on one pad or another?

My Juicy Sevens were last years gift and are still going strong. I felt ready to go back to a geared bike. That basketball court is on the way home which makes it convenient to stop at. It was either the long cage or one of those crappy shimano deraillieurs with the gigantic red pulley on it. I chose the long cage.

I hear those specialized tires really have traction if you zip tie them to your seat.
