Cycling in Melbourne Australia
Strava distance for this bike is now 7,956km, and if it's not on Strava, it's bullshit !
I haven’t ridden this bike for a while because I haven't been fit enough to push the gearing. Now that I'm a bit fitter and it has been raining I'll ride it some more. It's my only bike with mud guards... The brake pads had worn down to the metal inside again so I replaced front and rear this morning. My last two pairs of cheap Chinese brake pads. I think I'll try something different next time because these ones seem to be wearing out my rims more than usual. Especially when it's wet when they leave a lot of gritty black crap on the rims that sounds like grinding paste when I brake. Even though I have some spare rims, it's a pain in the butt re-lacing them.
