I received the few parts I needed from Xtracycle today. Went down to the shed to continue the build and realized that I will have to get some smaller tires, after all. So, I have some Michelin Pilots on the way from Speedgoat. I also looked at my truck tires and have realized that it’s almost time for new tires on it. Ugh! It’s amazing that I am willing to spend the same amount one tires for a bike and not wince, but that same priced tire on a vehicle makes me sick!
I am still looking at the adaptors for the 700c conversion of the freeradical and am a little confused. There aren’t any instructions, but I think I may have an idea…
On my way back up, I stopped to get rid of a root to a weed that was about 1 inch in diameter and pulled my back again. It was well one it’s way to healing. I have a little over a week for it to heal, as I have a backpacking trip scheduled:) I also have the whole week off from work. It’s my mental margarita week. The “if I don’t take some time off from people in a retail setting soon, someone’s in trouble” type of week.
Not working at the bike shop for the next two weeks. Pobably a good thing with my back. So, if all things go well, I may have an update on Thursday with the Xtracycle. And I might not;)
