I keep rollin along…

Use to be I just looked for the proper sized bicycle tire… now I sort through: road, touring, gravel, cruiser, training, mountain, performance, slick, urban and all sorts of tire types to decide what to ride on.  One site listed a tire as “road” until it reached  the width of 700 x 32 then it transformed into a gravel tire.

A warm day in winter…

Spring is a month away… but the weather has been warm enough think winter’s day is done.  As much as I enjoy the cool but warm day… it seems to early to see flowers and trees with green leaves.  I will go with the flow and hope the summer does not continue this trend of heat and just enjoy the nice of nice days and nights.

Good attracts good…

Picked up my bike, and the bike shop reduced my bill by 50%… I did not get upset that I had driven 84 miles and my bike was not ready.  I did not ask anything but they took on themselves to only charge for parts.  One of the reason’s I stay with them.  I did right by them, they did right by me.  (Passing thought, people think that by yelling and making demands gets results.  When I worked at a restaurant, a customer made a big deal about his dinner and wanted it done over…. it was a spaghetti dinner.  The head cook, dipped into a pot of steaming hot spaghetti sauce, poured it over the dinner and sent it back.  The customer was happy…)
