km 542.11

Surprised there are no comments observing this is perhaps the dullest blog on the net...and yet still we write...

Rode rough roads last night. This was on the Davenport bike lane, which was covered in mounds of snow along the length of it. Felt akin to 3000m of washboard and delivered an excellent vibrational loosening test. The tire pressure was at (front - 40PSI, rear - 40PSI) and sucked up the bumps without a complaint.

The bottom bracket lockring has come out of adjustment, producing some play. Must have happened since the last 101 km, as this was when the latest adjustment was given to that part. Ach, time to double check torque.

There is salty residue all over the paint now. The chain has become bone dry as deserves a trip to the lubritorium today. Chain has elongated by 1/32 inch over 12 inch span. At this rate, it will be time for fresh links by km 1000.
