Ride reports and other ramblings from a San Francisco cyclist.
Borrowing my wife's Bianchi while I get another bike together. Dug out my old TImbuk+saddlebag hack to haul stuff. Yesterday I zip-tied a crate on the rear rack and dumped the bag in it, but that sucked -- too much tail-wagging-the-dog for me. This is quite a bit better.
I do like front-loading better, even on a high-trail bike, me thinks.
Figures this would have to happen on my first day back to bike-commuting. Damnit!
I think this happened due to 1) old frame 2) 130mm rear hub in 126mm frame and 3) the locknuts on the Paul hub are very large/wide so they probably torqued the dropouts in a weird way, in conjunction with (2).
I probably should've respaced the frame when I mounted the new rear wheel. Sigh.
