My parents gave me a VERY NICE bike computer that I absolutely love when it works – but I’ve owned it since I turned 40 – about 15 months ago and it’s been replaced once already and is broken again. It has some seriously cool features – but none of them are currently accessible by me. Why you might ask? The “Mode” button is broken. That means the only screen I can see is the GPS Accuracy mode. It’s not a total loss… one of the things I like about it is the record feature, which will work… but looks like another trip back to Garmin. They have a “Flat Rate Fix” policy I read about – $80 … ugh! On top of that – I changed my cleats in my shoes last night and stripped one of the screws. Ooops… at least it’s a front one and there are 2 big strong back ones… It’s holding and you can get a replacement T-nut – but that’s 2 things in 2 days.
Great night at the track the other night – scored a nice 2nd place in the unkown distance. I had a bit of an issue with less than a lap to go – but hey, that’s bike racing! Got 4th in a points race that I was ganged up on … but hey – bring on the challenge! Makes me ride harder/stronger/faster!
Riding home tonight… maybe ride tomorrow or Sunday, but am on call and have homework to do – ewwwwwwww…..
