One Month To Go

14 Jul 2007 at 15:19 Filed Under:

Only one month to go now

I'm wondering if I'll ever ride the Surly with two working brakes again. In the last 3 weeks I've had 2 days where the rear brake's worked properly, and the rest where I've been riding on backing plates or not working at all.

Even a swap of brake to my old O2 has failed: Ride1: brake develops no lever throw so it's either off or locked, Ride2: pulling the lever to the bar fails to do anything, Ride3: starts off like ride 2 ends like ride 1, so pretty much no braking.

My freehub also died entirely today luckly I managed to get to the top of the last hill before home before I pushed the crank and it tore all the teeth on the ratchet off leaving me with a double freehub! - I've almost run out of brakes and wheels for the Surly now.

I only got soaked from th waist down today - maybe that's from the feet up? although it did rain, so I'm keeping my record going.
