First day riding since my back mishap almost two weeks ago. A cold, brisk day, but sunny and lovely. And the ride didn't bother my back at all. Woo hoo! The rail-trail that I use for about half my commute was still covered with a thin layer of snow in many places, and a little patchy ice, but not too bad. Still, I was glad to have the studded tires on the bike.
Coming soon... a series of "articles" about something I think might be handy to some folks... "How to Talk to Your Bicycle Mechanic". Just my general thoughts on how to better communicate in that situation, so we can both work to solve whatever ails your bike.
