    What did you do to/for your bike today?

    Some days I don't get to do anything or ride it, or even touch it, so I'd like to know what you did to or for your bike today.

    Today I lowered my stem by one spacer.


    Not what you think.

    Brake service kits installed front and rear and new pads.

    I forgot what awesome brakes felt like. Feels like a new bike all over again!

    Stripped one bike down to the bare frame, used the parts to build up a new one. I guess one hates me, and the other loves me.

    When I get home, I will change the rear tube on the Fish, the slow leak has finally pissed me off enough,
    then I'll unpack and put together my new bike (not that exciting, its a CHF 350 shitter)

    No riding today so I pedalled it by hand as it hung in my basement rafter.
    Then gave it a nice pat on the down tube, we ride soon!

    Cleaned a pile of sh!t off my rear tire. With my hand, as I unknowingly grabbed the bike to hoist onto my rack.

    ^^ don't feel like the lone ranger, last night I spun my bike around the yard long enough to get the seat height right, and I rode right through at least one surprise from my Pugs. 3/4 of an acre and I find a turd to ride over. It's a skill I tell you.

    I decided to dust the cobwebs off my "other" full suspension bike, filled the tires with air, and took a cruise around the neighborhood and tried a few wheelies...
    Amazing that we used to ride these things in the woods when I was a kid...

    Prepping spare bike for an out-of-town visitor tomorrow:
    He gets a chunkier front tire, a 9mm thru-axle conversion, a clean brake rotor, and the pedals of his choice.

    Mine gets a kick to remove dry mud, and some oil on my chain.

    I gathered part of the flock in for the winter ( the Blindside, Ragley, and wifes Safire). I'll probably fix the flat on the Adamant and might drink a beer and just stare lovingly at the Sunday I just finished. I'll also check my ebay bids ...we all really kind of want that cherry Italian made Marz66.

    edit...I'll definitely drink a beer...I might stare lovingly at the Sunday.

    Exercised it vigorously on an early ride, then hauled it down to the auto repair shop where I dropped off my truck, then rode it home. Then I rode it to work (truck was in the shop ).

    It must be very happy today.
