Bike Cleaning Sadness

August 31, 2011 Leave a comment

I haven’t done much cycling recently, not as much as I would like to anyways because of two main reasons. One being that I cleaned and washed my whole drivetrain today, and two the weather was kind of shitty.

Looking back to the whole cleaning thing, I could have probably put it off. After cleaning it because it was quite dirty, I instantly regretted it because of the whole factory lube thing. Oh well… nothing I can do now and it was looking quite dirty anyways. I suppose it had to be done sooner or later, and it happened to be sooner rather than later for me. I suppose I’ll keep that in mind when I have the chain replaced and I can have another go at ‘factory lube’. So on to the weather. Probably not a whole big deal but I live on the western end of San Francisco so that basically means I get fog day in and out for the last week or so. I know it’s all sunshines and carefree on the other, eastern side of the city but I don’t live there! Still I could bike over to that potion of the city, but I am getting tired of doing that in the name of ‘exploration’. One can only do so much exploring until boredom looms it’s ugly head. I could use a change of seasons to fall or even winter to liven things up.

I took a quick ride today after letting my bike rest up after cleaning. Isn’t that standard practice? I think it is after putting down a dry lube. I hear wet lubes are good to go, and I can’t wait to switch over to that. Currently I am just trying to use up all my dry lube before that though. Catch you all tomorrow! Weather report says it should be a great day.
