Oh, there you are!

26 October 2012

Not a good way to start the week.

I'm a MAMIL.


I'm a cyclist, it's the first option I think of for transportation as well as for recreation.
I cycle to work on my nearly 10 year old Trek that has more than 10,000km travelled and this week there was this strange pulse when I was braking approaching the station at the begining of my rostered shifts and when I pulled up to open the door my rear wheel ruptured and burst.

 I don't abuse vehicles or equipment and treat them as my own so this must have just been wear and tear.

So do I repair/replace the wheel or do I consider buying a new bike?

Be Excellent to Each Other and See You at the Big One!
