Today I just rode the bike, being alert for any quirks. There's a slight clunking coming from the bottom bracket area. I can feel it more than hear it. Methinks it's a stiff chain link, so I'll inspect them all.
The chain is now VERY short, due to having lost two links. At times, the shift from first gear to second has a hesitation and almost sounds like it's skipping a sprocket. I will add two more links to the bicycle chain. Maybe that will cure the problem.
I met my friend at a park outside of Waikiki. We decided to have lunch at a restaurant a mile away. Traffic was so congested, it took me 10 minutes to get there. It took him much longer to get there.
Afterwards, I rode my bike home, nine miles of moderate traffic, past the police station(ghost pedalling past them, of course). It took 36 minutes to get home, which is great timing when riding through the middle of town.
