Hi there. Long time, no talk. Don’t worry, everything is good, I’m just super busy. I picked up a side job doing some extra development work and that is consuming most of my free time. Rest assured I am still doing plenty of training. Last night I finished up my 6th straight day of riding and 3rd 3 hour bike ride in 4 days. I am telling myself that I am taking a day off from riding today, but depending on how the weather shapes up, I might have to extend the streak. I may be addicted to riding.
As evidence of all of my riding, my bike was making a bunch of noise on yesterday’s ride. I looked down to find this:
Not good. The crank arm was on the verge of falling completely off! Thankfully I had my Crank Brothers multi tool with me. Love this thing. Compact and has pretty much everything you need for an on the road repair. In no time, I had everything back to normal.
I’m still a little concerned about how/why the crank arm loosened up in the first place. Anyone else ever have this happen? Is this something I should be paying better attention to?
Any ways, that is my quick update for the day. I’ll hopefully be back soon with a more in depth training update.
