After my abortive efforts last week, I popped down to the LBS this morning to pick up the RaceFace bashring they pre-emptively ordered for me, along with a new chain. Everything is now fitted and once the threadlock has dried, will be raring to got. A bit of tweaking with a large screwdriver might have sorted out the front brake as well, although I’ll reserve judgement on that until I’ve had a suitable test ride, which given the weather is unlikely to be today, and maybe not even this weekend.
I’m exploring the 470-odd hours of mp3 I have on the network via the delights of Winamps shuffle mode. It’s producing a few “oh, didn’t know I had that” moments.
