The days have been getting longer since December 22nd, and recently I feel like I can really tell! I no longer need to turn on my lights for the ride to work (still need them on the way home though) and even when I walk the dogs in the morning, it’s not completely dark!
The “Prairie Bullet” needs maintenance like nobody’s business, here’s a short list of problems:
1. The rear brakes need to be adjusted, because right now, they don’t work.
2. The “face plate” on my front gears (by my right leg) came off last week, and I still haven’t put it back on.
3. All the gears on the front and back are CAKED with mud, and other road “gunk” I can’t imagine that’s helping efficiency
I’m going to do some internet research this weekend, and try my hand at the repairs myself. Wish me luck!
