Art on the Green
Today I went to "Art on the Green". It was pretty cool. I bought a wooden light switch cover for the cabin in Montana. I took some photos and a couple of them were interesting, but since this is bicycle log, I'm going to post another photo from my bike ride yesterday. Cathy is up on the front left, and I think the guy on the lower right is Burton. He is probably in his late 60s or who knows might even be in his 70s. He is in great shape for any age. I rode along with him for a while until he went over some train tracks a little too fast for me.
I finished working on Gary's Cannondale. I cleaned the rear cassette and the chain. I re-packed the cogs on the rear derailluer, cleaned the crank and cleaned everything. I got it to shift pretty good now. I trued the rear wheel, cleaned off the braking surfaces on the rims and adjusted the brakes. Now they don't squeak when you apply the brakes. I took it back to Gary this morning and scolded him for letting it get so bad. So it's in pretty good shape now. It took me about 4 hours.
