Another Freedom Challenge singlespeed adventure - this time from the bike's point of view...
Monday, June 13, 2011
With only a few days to go to our Friday start date, the pilot has been fiddling with his gear and making some final tweaks. I now have a dynamo powered light mounted, a rear flasher, a trip computer and a top tube bag for on-board charging operations. Everthing looks neat and tidy and all wiring is properly wrapped in tape to keep it away from any aggressive bush we may need to go bashing through!
We did a quick test run yesterday and I got carried to the top of the local mountain. The new shoes passed the portage test and the sunset views from the summit were great. He'll probably still be tinkering with a few things this week but I think Skinny Legs is actually starting to get excited about this ride.
