As most of you know, I have been putting quite of bit of miles on my bike. With that, parts get worn and need to be maintained. Well this last weekend, that is what I did.
I rode up to a good friend in Howell, Michigan and with his help, I did an incredible amount of work on my bike.
The main projects were replacing a steering head bearing, chains, sprockets and checking the valves. Most of this work I would be able to do on my own but my friend has many of the correct tools and with his background, I was able to get all the work done in about a third of the time that it would taken me to do it alone.
On, Monday I stopped by Blimpy Burger in Ann Arbor, MI.
Evidently this is a pretty popular burger joint for University of Michigan students. I first learned about this place when I saw the restaurant profiled on the Food Network program, “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives”. Go here for the segment.
The place wasn’t hopping as much as in the show but the burgers were still pretty darn good.
After my meal I rode back down to Ohio. I’m happy to say I notice a great improvement in the handling of my bike.
