2010 Ride #36

Was out late last night high above Heber, so slept in this morning … got a very late start on my ride, so decided to go for an easy, flat spin. Unfortunately, said spin was cut even shorter than planned by a broken front spoke. Really glad it happened at 15mph on a flat ride, than at 35-40mph while dropping a canyon.

So now the search begins for a suitable replacement spoke for my circa 2001 Campagnolo Nucleon front wheel … and since I’m one of those dorks who like riding matching wheels, I guess now is as good a time as any to start riding my Cole wheels. Just spent the evening going back and forth between doing laundry and gluing a pair of Challenge Criterium Nerone tires.
