Hoera, ik heb mijn fiets weer terug! Sinds maandag liep de achterband steeds heel langzaam leeg. Ik was van plan het euvel vandaag te fixen, maar mijn fiets reed gisteravond eigenlijk als vanzelf naar de fietsenmaker. Zojuist weer opgehaald, wel een rib uit mijn lijf gekost, maar goed. Mag ik ook eens de yup uithangen.. Volgende keer doe ik het echt zelf. Echt waar.



I’ve had my current bike for almost 5 years now and it’s starting to rust. I hope it can last another wet autumn, it recently started creaking when I’m making my way across bridges and such. Never a good sign. So I’m thinking maybe it’s time to get a new bike. My dad’s working on a cool shelter so at least it can be stored free of rain.


I recently lost not one but two spokes from my bike, which didn’t make for a very nice ride. I’m now contemplating replacing it with a new one. They’ve got some great ones on offer at the nearby shop. I’m not sure how much longer this bike will last anyway, I’ve used it everyday for the past few years now. On the other hand, if I have the wheel replaced it might be fine for a few years to come. Hm. Dilemma.

Update: I decided to have the wheel replaced and it’s now all shiny and silvery again. Well, at least the back end. The rest is still rusty. I’ve promised myself I’ll get a new one if any new faults show up.
