Guilty of Bicycle Neglect

I have been guilty. Guilty of neglect. Anyone that rides bicycles a lot knows you have to take care of them. I have got several bikes out in the garage that need care. Chains, and rear derailleurs cleaning and lube, brake adjustments, lubrication, bearing adjustments etc. But tonight I chose to eat a bunch, drink a few beers, chill with my honey and watch TV. Tomorrow, well I'll have get down to bike business.

Oh how I dread bike maintenance. I do stuff like brake adjustments and chain/component cleaning, but still take the bikes in once a year for an overhaul. The trick is to do it off-season when there are discounts!!

You ride waaaaay more miles than I do. You remind me a little of my friend Tom.

Yeap, I think bikes should self repair if we keep em warm and feed em right. :-)
