I replaced the front derailleur. The bike chain is no longer scraping the bottom of its selector/guide, so that's good.

Painted the exhaust with BBQ paint. A gnat landed on the final coat.
Oh well, I hope it'll just burn off without leaving much of a mark.

Got a flat on the way back from across town. had a peace of copper poke through my rear tire. Then I fond out that I forgot my tire irons. Pulled my bike over to a bus stop and went to work. buy the time I was done my hands were black and I only was able to get about fifty pounds in my tire ,but I made it home. Lucky for me I brought a shop rag, but still no hand soap I am thinking about making a extension for my pipe so that my rear wheel won't be so oily.

Its no fun trying to get the rear wheel back on with track type drop outs and no bike stand.

other than that it was a good ride.

Clutch pads were beyond repair, so I cut some new ones out of ragjoint material. It works alright, but I gotta order some new ones tomorrow.

The last time I needed to, I plugged the gas cap and flipped the bike upside down.

Maybe that would work for you too.

I've been riding my bike to work for the past few weeks. It is such a joy, especially when I don't have to park my car a quarter mile away from my workplace. I also get free covered parking in the secure parking structure.

I've finally learned how to "tuck in" while riding. I usually do this while ripping up the slight to moderate hills. This seems to help maintain my speeds. Since I'm curious about how this improves my speed, I'm gonna install a SECOND speedometer. This will allow me to monitor speed, when I'm in a "tucked in" position.
