gimme a brake...
- ... well, that's what I am going to do to my xtracycle. Right now
when I apply the rear brake, I swear it speeds up :-) Those brake pads
pretty much wore out in a couple of months. So I'm going to get a new
wheel (this rim has had many years of abuse) and disc brake. I was a
little surprised at how quickly those brake pads burned up - but I do
put a lot of miles on that puppy in traffic. I like being able to
slow down (it's why I don't do downhill skiing ;-))
The blender is supposed to arrive today, though! I tell people to
consider it a mid-life thing or a cosmic karmic influence (since I'm
considered the frugal sort and this rather confuses them)... now I'm
going to head over to that UPS tracking website !
