Guess what I'm riding tomorrow?!?!

I've really loved the Austro-Daimler since I found it on the Lincoln Bicycle Swap Meet. Except, I couldn't stand the break levers. The hoods were small and the angle that you had to pull the levers was hard and awkward. I didn't feel safe enough on it to commute on, and that's what I was hoping to use it for.

So late last night I took it into Bike Pedalers to have it tuned up, new cables, bar tape and break levers. They said they'd work on it Friday and try to have it done by the end of the day Friday. They called early this afternoon to say it was ready to be picked up. Wow, that was quick! I rode it around a little and can't believe how smooth it shifts and how predictable the breaks feel now. It's awesome!

I had to work in Leigh today, so I couldn't ride. But I can't wait to take the Austro-Daimler to work tomorrow!
