Honestly. THis is what salt does. I tried to get the front brakes working and I *did* get enough WD=40 in there and wiggled it enough to get it to go back… but then it doesn’t actually stop the bike now. Must adjust cable again.
(I’m not going to get a beater bike — just demonstrating what happens…)
I dropped to 522 in the bikejournal stats — but more to the point, in the bottom six in the “cycle time century” stats. (Much easier to run down rabbits from there, too.) Thinking, as I did last year, of Calvin’s Challenge, and whether or not a girl could just do it without a “support team.” Snork. Of course. Will need a new camelbak, I s’pose, but it’s only 12 hours ;)
