Maybe if the driver was caring a patch kit and mini pump he wouldn't have to SAG it in.

As found at Cummings Skyway & San Pablo Ave today.

Talk about a celebrity filled weekend. As I was busy finding Pokémons on the trail I run into @DiabloScott

And thank you Scott for the bridge!

In Portland, you don't have to give up clowning.

The first two seasons of Portlandia were classic. After that... not so much.

Sorry about the crummy picture, S-Work Bike & Old Flip Phone.
(A cyclist has to have priorities)

I have been thinking about washing my bike in one of the stalls at the So Quik Car Wash for a while.
It is only a mile from my place.

Today was the day, I pumped in a few quarters, and presto!
I didn't skimp, even went all in on an a coat of clear sealant after the rinse.

A gorgeous showroom shine, making a 6 month old bike, with over 3,700 miles, look brand new.
A bit obsessive but, it was fun.

Yeah, bearings just love the pressure wash treatment...

And you have a water hose handy in case your CF frame spontaneously bursts into flames.

Pholuvr is right about the bearings, though. A pressure washer is probably not a good thing for hubs, bottom brackets or headsets.

The wand up in that wall holster is not really a pressure washer.
It puts out a nice fan shaped mist for rinsing.
I was careful around hubs, bottom bracket, and headset.

My CF frame was fine, it is the Crabon Fiber ones that heat up and explode.

Right.

There's a reason why smart folks and pro mechanics bucket wash.
