Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Here is a pic of my recently acquired fag-o-cycle (from a catalog not my personal one).

Image

Now in the shop getting its initial brake adjustment etc. Should be ready this week.

I will ride it a bit in the parking lot on the first not too cold day to get the seat and handlebar adjustment just right.

The streets should be clear of ice soon.

See the 'feats' thread from progress from there. My intention is to start riding at least some every day modulo weather.

Pretty much identical to my original fag-o-cycle. :)

Nifty bikes for the town and city.

Now I know there's one thing I gotta gotta gotta see in Manchester.

Looks overall cooler than the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, though we do have a captured Nazi U-Boat you can walk through.

My chain cleaning tool and various noxious chemicals and a new set of brake pads arrives tomorrow.

Then we begin biking again!

Now that the Stopfunian rain has warmed up a bit, Fag-o-cycle No. 5 has been serviced and safely locked away for what passes as the Summer hereabouts.

Fag-o-cycle No. 6 has just had an upgraded front chain set and rear cassette fitted, giving it the effective gearing of a 24 speed bike and the ability to race Porsches and climb near vertical hills. Together with a new, sprung saddle, upgraded handlebar grips, super-bright lights, a rack, new panniers and one of the newfangled link locks, all this has turned a £104 cheapo bike into something rather special. :)
