Cycling Along The Way...

Riders of the wheel. Racers, Roadies, Mountain bikers, Touring cyclists, Commuters, and others. Diamond frames, recumbents, trikes, and more. Sharing a web of connections often misunderstood or unappreciated by those who don't ride. Herewith, my attempt to share some of the more rational thoughts that flit around inside my head while bicycling, knocking back a brew or three, or just thinking about life. Reviews of bicycles, gear, touring, and more, plus some unsolicited posts about people, politics, and philosophy. Other things, too. Me: retired, gave up my TV in 1988, avid cyclist, several cross country tours completed with more to come. Your thoughts?

New Handlebars

Well, I purchased a "Noodle" handlebar...48cm...and had it put on my bicycle by Bill at Gila Hike & Bike.  I can do that work, but not as good or as fast as Bill  can.  The bars feel great...more relaxed position and more places to put my hands.  Being able to change hand position is good.  I'll be back out on the bike tomorrow into the mountains.  Worked out at the gym today and came close to breaking my right index finger!  Yikes!  Bruised it good and a small, sore scrape, too.  I was replacing a 60lb dumbbell ....but ended up being the dumbbell..!!  Ice and ibuprofen helped immensely.  Enough for tonight.  More tomorrow...
