Ha Ha This A-way, Ha Ha That A-way

01 Oct 2007 at 14:45

Adventures in destroyin the KHS continue... today the back end took over the front end, so now, if I want to tip the bike in and brake the bike drags the opposite way, pretty much the exact feeling you ge when your front tyre goes flat.

Also, if I pedal hard I can get the rotor to touch the sides of the rear caliper, sweet, It won't be long before the tyres dragging against the chain/seatstays. It truly is a marvelously designed machine!

P.S. Winter wind's here, stupidly strong from the East, great, I was hoping that the switch from West (summer) to East (winter) would be slow and lead to some nice wind-free days (I know, *that*'s just crazy thought!)

I thought you were going to rebuild the Chameleon? It was indeed stupidly windy today.

I recognised it but couldn't remember where it came from. Do I get half a point?
