I put the noodles back on the Trek. Everything instantly felt better.
I scored an old Rivendell Hobo Bag on eBay a month or two ago.
It’s a lot bigger in real life than I thought it would be from looking at pictures on the internet.
Anyhow, I went out for a short ride (6 miles or so) to fiddle with handlebar height, angle, brake lever placement, and all that stuff. I’ll probably continue to fiddle it with for a few days before I re-tape the handlebars.
I’ve already ridden 500% more miles this year than I did all of last January 🙂
