km 3200-ish maintenance at last!

Performed 2000km maintenance on drivetrain and bottom bracket on January 29th. Did not matter that was over 1000km over the interval as parts had to be replaced anyway. It is ever so quiet now without that enyh-enyh noise from the bottom bracket bearings.

Cost of maintenance (approximately):

BB $18
Chain $5
Freewheel $12
Oil & grease $5
Taxes $5
Time: 45 minutes

Since then rear brake, as water in brake line becomes frozen

Also, plastic front shifter knob broke off in -22C weather, relegating all pedalling to be done in big ring.
