Today the wife wanted to go for a bike ride, so I drug out my old Schwinn Moab, lubed up the chain, wiped off all the dust, aired up the tires, then she hopped on her bike and we were off! Halfway around the block I realized I couldn't shift out of low gear after I shifted in, ok, no worries, just more of a workout... then I tried climbing a small dirt hill in the park next to our house to beat her to the path and promptly racked my junk and scraped my knees up after the chain snapped in 6 different links. DOH!
I've been wanting a new to me bike anyway so I figured "it ain't carnage, it's an upgrade opportunity!" then picked up a Gary Fisher Joshua Z1 off of Craigslist a few hours later. It needs some tlc, but I am hoping I can have it running smooth and ready for our next ride.
We know what Andy and Marn did.. Anyone else do anything fun? Oh yeah Marn, we demand pics of the progress. I am hoping you did desert camo, that would look awesome!
