Advancing the State of Maintenance

Yesterday's effort leaves me drained. A frustrating day at the office. Both bikes badly need cleaning and maintenance. New wheels need mounting. The combination contrives to keep me from doing my recovery ride. Instead I mount tires on a newly acquired wheelset. While enjoying a couple of Sunshines.

These are mounted toobless with Stan's. I started out apprehensive about mounting toobless tires. In my past, I've mounted toobless car tires by hand with nothing but a hammer and some screwdrivers. One miserable afternoon that was!. My fear this would bring forth a similar level of frustration. All fears unfounded, though, as the process is super simple. I don't think I'd try it without an air compressor though.

Shiny new parts...

More details after a short trial...
