Brandi and I went down to the LVRT after work to have a little ride before dinner. Unfortunately, I got us lost on the way there, and it started getting dark outside soon after we got started. No worries, I had my headlight fully charged…
Except that I was wearing prescription sunglasses, and when I took them off to see better in the low-light conditions, I discovered that my uncorrected vision is so bad that I couldn’t see the trail.
So, we had to turn around after only 3 miles.
Brandi’s Mixte also seem to have developed problems with the freewheel. It kind of wants to be a fixed-gear sometimes. She’s still rocking the original French helicomatic hub, which (for historical reasons) I’d rather not have to replace, but I really don’t see another option. I do still have the old 27″ wheelset from the Trek in the trunk of my car, which should be a perfect fit. At least this repair won’t cost me any money 🙂
