On the Wings of Idunn

As the Vernal  Equinox ushers in the the warming season, The Norse Goddess of Spring…Idunn brings with her a rebirth of promise and possibilities…fore, she will lead the way for my wheels to roll-

We are now four weeks into the Spring season and the weather here in the northeast of the U.S. has finally turned a corner, with temps consistently in the mid 50’s to mid 60’s.

Although I have been putting in some rides, this is a time of the year where I will be ramping up my volume of riding. So it’s time for the obligatory tune up. In addition to recent cable and gearing adjustments, today I installed new bar tape, a new chain, and fresh new rubber both front and rear. The R-002 is now ready to take on the rest of the year though I’m not so sure about its rider! lol….

Luckily I was able to locate another pair of the Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Slick tyres, one on Amazon and one on ebay, because unfortunately Vittoria have discontinued this particular tire model. Combined, I paid a total of $35 dollars for the pair, scoring another great bargain for a great set of tires.
