Doing some saddle swapping and fine tuning the adjustments. There are some videos on Youtube about reupholstering/re-padding bicycle saddles — may give that a try — what’s the worst thing that could happen that hasn’t already happened? Since Illinois is now under the Stay in Place order until May 30, might be a project to fill some time.
The other Raleigh with a swapped saddle — there was a lot of saddle swapping going on.
Going west on Elm street . . . . the dark spots are hydraulic oil from a garbage truck . . . . the bigger patch is where it stopped to pick up a tote . . . . it left a small spot in front of our place . . . . leak is getting worse
And worse and worse
If their policy is Fix on Fail — it appears that time has arrived
So, hydraulic issues aside, time to focus on saddle height/angle and enjoy some riding doing so.
For Suzanne — dandelions on south 7h street — measly amount compared to Germany
For Bill’s Photo of the Month/Week/Day/Hour/Moment
Met these intrepid cyclists as I rode south of town on 7th street — little guy in the helmet was doing his best at keeping up and doing very well at it
I caught back up with them after riding down to 4000N
Here, when they reached town, he had slipped off the pedals and took a hit on his right leg — ouch! But was soon ready to continue to Gramma’s house in our subdivision
Assuming they rode back home, they did a 4 mile ride
(A few minor tweaks and the saddle swaps are good to go) 🙂
