cool runnin'

The pig iron runs OK even in sub zero temperatures. It is nice to get new lenses for my eyewear. It has been a good idea to go with the clear lenses as opposed to the sunglasses 'cause it is dark very often when riding this time of year. It prevents eyes watering and lookin like a cry-baby.

The eyewear we're goin with in this kit is MEC Espresso (style # 4018-108 - $19) combined with clear lenses (style # 4018-107 - $6). They provide adequate wind coverage for the oculars of my smiling mug and keep bugs off when moving at high speeds. They are also UVA/UVB protective and have adequate optics. Constructed of shatter resistant polycarbonite lenses. Also have the brown lenses for sunshiny days. Other colours are smoke, orange, yellow, pink and rose.

The rear brake thing is OK now, so the liquid PTFE may be the right call. All that's left to do is have the northern hemisphere point towards the sun more often such as to warm this place up. Cycling in the cold takes some of the fun out of it for this rider.
