 Easy Town Ride
Building a new bike to replace my Look 585 that has started to show its age. The lugs on the frame for the rear brakes keep popping off as the rivets and glue has deteriorated. I've glued them back on but the repair doesn't last very long and am concerned with brake failure especially on some of the mountain descents I frequent. Plan on using screws to reattach the lugs in addition to the glue but will now relegate the bike to the indoor trainer, as I am somewhat concerned with frame failure now that the glues have degraded. Ordered a new groupo and had to hang around to sign for it when it was delivered. Although it came fairly early it was the wrong parts and had to get that straightened out and ship back the groupo. Ended up to be a disappointing day overall and just took the mountain bike out for a short ride along town just to claim I rode today. Turned out to be a nice ride. Hopefully won't delay new bike for long as many other parts won't be here until the first of next week.
