Yesterday I rode 11.93 miles home. It threatened to rain but never followed through. The shifting problem turned out to be messed-up shift cables, so Tomas and I drove down to River City Bicycles with the old cables (front and rear) and had them cut new housings. $14 later, we went back to the house and replaced the cables. (Note: When I say "we", I mean Tomas did most of the work and I mainly watched and learned for the next time. Of course, I had messed with the set screws the day before when trying to fix the problem, and threw the alignment of the derailleur off with respect to the cogs. Anyway, it's fixed now and I'm back on MY bike - Yay!

Is there extra pride in the repairs, or are you just happy to be riding again?

Happy to not be riding Kris' bike to work - which is a nice bike, but it doesn't feel right.
