New Tires and Computer, Whoo Hoo!!

Since I had no workouts schedule for a day, it was nice to relax. Last week after my flat, I decided it was time to purchase some new tires. After looking at all the freaking tires available and some quick advice from Roger, I had made my decision. While I was at it I also purchased a new bike computer and I spent the night putting it all on the bike. After a few phone calls making sure I wasn't doing anything wrong and a trip to REI, I had it all ready for the BLT (Bike Loop Tuesday) ride tomorrow.

One thing about bike tires they come off a lot easier then they go on. After struggling to stretch the new tires to get on the rim and breaking the crappy plastic tire lever, the new tires look sweet. Seeing the difference in the old tires and the new, I really don't know what took me so long to buy a new pair (knowledge). I HAVE SO MUCH TO LEARN!!!! The bike computer wasn’t any easier and after putting it on and taking it off a few times, I think I am ready to go. The new computer has a cadence reader which should really help me from the bike to run transition, keeping my muscles ready to go.

Aww, I read this great headline and thought you'd bought a Mac. :-(

Nice! I'm very excited for you about your new purchases! I know how you feel about having so much to learn. I feel like a complete idiot when it comes to my bike. I'm not even brave enough to try and put these things on by myself! You know more than I do! :)

That's one fun part about this sport - you never stop learning. There's ALWAYS something new to learn.
