Summer Storms = Bike Repairs

I fixed something BEFORE it broke!!!
Fixie's chain had about 5k on it so time for a new one
It was however half a link longer than the new one.

Front wheel got to 3 broken spokes so it was time to fix.
Lubed all the bearings and got out the hammer and trued the wheels 

Big Helper

And this little piggy is all ready for almonzo 100!
So 2 days to the second race of the season, this one I will be finishing (hopefully).  Of ya and throw in 5 days off work and you get a perfect weekend!

I've never trued a wheel with a hammer, however I have learned painfully to check for chain wear and replace before they wreck everything else or drop you off in the middle of no where. Good luck rac'n.
