7000 mile check-up
There comes a time in the life of every bike when it needs a little work. That time has come for my Trek 1500. Last Saturday while riding a century with friends, Mark P. noticed little wobble in my rear wheel. It wasn't enough for me to notice on the bike but after closer inspection my rear rim was cracked. Off the the LBS for me, I dropped my ride off and told Rich to give it the once over to see if anything else needed some attention. I ended up with new front and back brakes, a new chain, a straightening of my slightly bent derailleur and of course a new rear wheel. Hey what do you know I almost have a new bike again. Hopefully it's good for another 7000 miles or so now.
