km 601.10

Whoa, opportunity to put on 50 km yesterday disintegrated as plans were put off until Tuesday.

The beast is running OK, almost no changes to observe. There is accumulation of salt dust on the frame, probably not a worry as the paint is completely intact. The shifting from the rear derailleur has been slightly audible, a gentle puch or pull on the shifter seems to enquieten it.

Looking forward to attending the Toronto International Bicycle Show this weekend, as there might perhaps be a lighter bike for summertime use in the budget down the road. Plenty of models to look at there, and it will be fun to see what is new in manufacturers' catalogues.
