By the way, this blog is going to run for a few issues – you’ve been warned!
I have just worn my rear tyre down to the canvas (thought the ride was a bit bumpy!), so I began to think it was time to take all this maintenance a little more serious. So I reached for the bike catalogue I had in the house and perused what was available.
First of all, obviously, was the tyre. I came across one that seemed just the job. It fitted on almost any rim as well.
Then I noticed the wheels and chain needed a bit of attention, found some tools that would be ideal.
But after all this work my mits were mucky so a little something to clean me up.
If only I’d looked a little further I could have got the whole caboodle in one though.
While I’m doing all this, I better start collecting some tools as well to help me in my tasks.
Oh dear, it doesn’t stop there, I’ll need some stuff for punctures, getting the tyre off and re-inflating it. Of course there’s something in the catalogue for me.
Then I look at the date on the front of the catalogue and it all became clear.
Ah well, looks like I’ve left it a wee bit late to order from this one. Maybe it’s time to upgrade the bike? Now where did I put that catalogue?
