If you're from south, check Brent Edmund - he sorted out some shifting issues I had on my specialized earlier this year (I screwed it up when cleaning)

Off the saddle this week, got the flu and can't breathe without a coughing fit that feels like I'm getting stabbed.

Got my first "incident" on sunday.
picked up a piece of broken glass, got a leak in the rear.
Didnt know until the bike starting 'winding' with little handle input.

Was 20k from home, called the wife to pick me up.
Patched it myself at home, will see if it holds out to ride again weekend.

Realized in need some stocks, so I went to blueskycycling and bought some stuff.

My underseat storage zipper broke, so I bought new one, plus a front bag.
Got some front and rear bolt on fenders, because rainy season is back and riding in the wet sucks when road water keeps blowing onto my freaking face.

Got a couple spare tubes and an extra repair kit. Also got a vulcanization kit at my village shop for 30tt.
Also wore my handlegrips down, so picked up a set of ODI's; and I scored some front and rear lights for cheap.
My gloves are also ripping, so picked up a replacement set.

Maybe I went a little nuts, but it's stuff that I really need.
Everything came up to a hair over 150usd, which is probably half the price i'd pay locally for these things.

Tubes and repair kits cheap locally tho. 30 a tube and less than 100 for a patch kit. Please don't ride without at least a spare tube

yup, I know. The tubes were really an add-on more than anything.
Bought puncture resistant tubes, 2 for 15usd. regular tubes were about half that price.

Gloves, grips, storage and fenders were what I really wanted.

Now that I have some additional storage, I will ride with a patch kit as well as a spare tube :)


Here's a good tip for those riding alone.

Use Glympse to share your live location with someone so that they can at least see where you are at any given point in time.
https://glympse.com/what-is-glympse

I know my estimated riding time, so I usually set it for an hour extra. It's not a major drain on your phone battery. With my phone, using Glympse for 4 hours usually drops it to 75% or so from a full charge.

Agreed. I've put more kms on this bike in one year than I did for my entire teenage years. Had a cheapo bike back then and was a world of headache.
This is a pretty good unit with great quality components from factory. All Shimano hydro brake and shift components. I actually wore the handgrips down smooth with use. Replaced with silicone odi.
I'll check Mike's for the bottom bracket fix that is beyond my comfort level to open

Coast to Coast ride
Waterloo to Manzan.
I just registered, anyone going?
It'll be a hard push for me since it's outside my comfort zone, but it's doable.
