    It's not the winter anymore, but I finally got around to ordering some parts for my bike. I can't wait to start getting it ready! It just occurred to me that I forgot to order derailleur cables though...

    What did you order? Did you get wheels?

    No, still need to figure out he whole rear wheel thing. I ordered a new rear derailleur, cassette, and 2 derailleur hangers. My last ride the shifting got all wonky and I ended up jamming the chain between the cassette and spokes really bad. Ended up finishing the ride in pretty much one gear.

    Sounds like your last ride was less than enjoyable for you.

    I really need to order a new drive drive train for my FS.

    Yes, I was pretty pissed off. I don't think the rest of my group was too pleased at being delayed for 20 minutes while we worked to get the chain unstuck either.

    That's why I'm going to start the season with a fresh, straight hanger and a new derailleur. I always like to start the season with a new cassette and chain anyway. I need to check the chain rings on the front, the "middle" could probably use replacement too.

    By middle you mean the granny gear?

    No, I mean what would be the middle if I had a big ring. I don't like using the granny if I can help it. I'm not good at spinning, mashing is more effective for me. I've destroyed several middle rings, but I don't think I've worn out a granny yet.

    Maybe I'll just ride the hardtail this year, about 25 miles on it.

    Bring that hardtail down to Trumbull and I'll show you a 1000 reasons to ride your FS.
