Whatever it is, it’s been a long time since I’ve ridden my bike to work.<br />n<br />nLast night, I put my slicks on my MTB and everything lined up just right. Didn’t need to adjust the brakes or even the gears, it all just worked. Even the speedometer’s magnet lined up right the first time.<br />n<br />nMy odo read 8.01 miles and 33 minutes when I got into work. A little longer on the distance (probably because I had the wrong setting set on the odo), but about right on the time.<br />n<br />nIt was a great morning for a ride, too. Brisk but not chilly, little wind, little traffic. Exhilarating!<br />n<br />n(Has it been five years since <a href=”https://www.jaworskihouse.com/blog/index.php?/archives/14-Fatboys.html” title=”five years ago”>I got those Fat Boys</a>?)
