A "snow day" happened on Friday. As if I needed another day to pace around the house.
I was going to wait until my new Paragon Machine Works SS slider showed up, but boredom and a lack of better things to do was the impetus to make the swap early. More about the "gears thing" tomorrow.
Fibonacci Rules of Chainline Measuring for a dead-on setup.
That did not eat up enough of a day. Organize drawers of chaos all over the place.
I need an indoor hobby.
Saturday, there were two party options at two different bike shops. There was a "surprise" party for Watts at Revolution Cycles in Greensboro, but snow and a lack of desire to use a four wheeled vehicle to get anywhere kept me from considering going Northish. I'll be Fappening with him next month anyways.
There was also a much more local option that sounded better because I wouldn't have to drive. The Bike Source Fan Jam from 4:00-8:00PM was a thousand times more doable. I needed to get over there anyways because I decided to replace my 15+ year old SIDI Storms that fell apart with a new pair of winter shoes. FaceBook was kind enough to remind me that the last time I was able to use my Storms before the soles just fell off from old age was a year ago at the 2015 Icycle.
Beer, pizza, friends who all needed a reason to escape the house. Beer is a reason.
