Fettling (With Help)

09th February 2014
Today has been spent looking after the boys whilst Jen was on a training walk (Keswick to Barrow is coming up) so we spent some time fettling my hardtail ready to have a run out tomorrow. The old brakes which are pretty much useless came off, and some other old brakes - which are considerably better - went back on. The only new bits involved were some bigger rotors to increase stopping power, which is something I have been finding necessary as I have been upping the rate of descent of late! The hardtail being more useful in this weather as there are less bits to destroy or wear out in the grit and rain!

Otherwise, pretty uneventful day!

I keep having moments though - thought "I haven't told Mum about Jen's walk yet" and went to get the phone... remembering only as I picked it up that she wouldn't be on the other end. That broke me for a few minutes until I regained composure.
