My Stuff Always Works….Sometimes

Posted: August 1, 2009 in Daily Weirdness

Since I have taken the bikes off of the wall to ride in my pursuit to un-fatness I have been plagued with a constant stream of mechanical failures. I should have expected some since both bikes have been hanging on the wall of my garage for quite a few years without any attention paid to them. It seems the road bike is in the shop or on the work stand for one reason or another nearly on a weekly basis. This week the front derailleur virtually disintegrated on a hill climb leaving with the option of one gear for the entire ride home. I didn’t even count the ride because essentially I just limped it home with very little effort, I felt like it was a wasted trip. So back to the shop with another request for repair and another few days of clanging down the road on the mountain bike.
