Biking Recap for July 2014

My July Bicycling Accomplishments

  • This wasn’t much of an accomplishment for me, but another big thank-you to Hillsboro’s Bike N Hike. I broke two spokes on my rear wheel within the span of a fortnight. The second time I questioned whether it would make more sense to get a brand new wheel. Maybe mine had a bent rim that couldn’t be straightened without undue stress on a spoke or two. They suggested cutting out all the spokes and completely rebuilding the wheel instead of just replacing the single broken spoke. I was imagining the shop fee involved and asked whether it would be cheaper to just replace the wheel.1 Of course not, was the reply. They weren’t going to charge me. When I pressed, they said I could show my appreciation with a six-pack of Henry’s. Thank you!
