MIlestone #4 of the Week

13 Jul 2007 at 18:45 Filed Under:

The only milestone I could find for today was ride number 250 on the Surly.

It was a VERY VERY wet ride (and windy), but warm again (for this year anyway) so I didn't wear a jacket.

My rear pads yet again dissolved somewhere on Winter Hill, only two brake pulls into the ride. So the the majority of the ride was spent trying not to go to fast into loose / broken / muddy corners because front would cause crashing.

Im going to assume the pads, which were put in in April 2006 were organic and maybe degraded a bit.. but at least I made some pads last almost 15 months!

Despite the terrible weather, scary braking and shredded trails, today's ride was alright... I'd quite like to see the sun again soon, the great tanlines I had in April have been sanded away.
