The bike is in full working order.  I replaced the front brake cable, though it will likely need to be readjusted again in a day or two once the cable stretches a bit. 

I would be out riding right now, save for the fact that it just started pouring rain…

Oh well.  Maybe it will let up enough for me to bring the bike to work tonight.  Though it doesn’t look promising.



The bike has been ridden.  A joyous time was had.  But.  The nut and washer that clamps the front brake cable to the caliper rattled off on the ride home. 

So, its off to the hardware store to find replacements.  Then I can come back, install the new front brake cable and everything is ready! 

At some point, when I have more time and money I will dismantle the whole thing and give it all a good degreasing and cleaning.  But, until then, it’ll do just fine as is. 

Oh yeah, I also need a good bike lock and helmet.  So maybe 92% would be more appropriate…
