    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 you get older, much of your hate comes from knowledge and experience, which is why really old people hate everyone

    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.
