Newest Road Bike

This is my Newest road bike. (I only have one, it is named the “Newest.”)

2010 Fuji Newest 3.0
Carbon fork, nice handlebar, adjustable handlebar stem. The rest is pretty much standard low-end road bike stuff. Now I just have to ride it into the ground.

This bike is almost half the weight of my Schwinn, which I was thinking of using for training.

Bike Weight(lbs) Tire Width (mm)
2007 Fuji Taho 29 Comp 34 54
2010 Schwinn World Street 41 35
2010 Fuji Newest 3.0 23 25

Weekly Bike Ride

It seems that I only have time for a weekly bike ride, so I make the most of it. Even if it is raining a little bit. Or if there is still a bunch of snow on the ground. The replaced brakes worked quite well. I guess there just isn’t a whole lot of material to wear through on little bicycle disc brake pads. Latest bike repair is that I replaced the saddle. I used to have a nose-less style sadde, with a tad too much padding. I now have a more traditional saddle, with less padding. (Padding here isn’t necessarily a good thing, since you want your weight to be on your pelvic pretty directly, and not supported by … soft tissue.)

“Yes, we can!”

I was biking home when I came across 3 middle school students standing over a crashed bike. The fender had gotten messed up, and they were trying to take it off. The asked me to help them, so I was standing there a little bit trying to talk to them, when I suddenly said “実は。。。”,(Actually,…) pulled out my keys, and unscrewed the fender with my Utili-Key.

(Everyone should have a Utili-Key on their key chain)
