Leather Paint

I was at the leather store, picking up some grommets and I happened across some orange acrylic leather paint that is a near perfect match for the Sam Hillborne's paint so the trim on my leather bags got a little work.

New Tires

Finally wore out the Schwalbe's.  Tread worn down to the puncture resistant layer.  I only blew 30 bucks a tire this time.  Picked up a pair of Michelin City in 700 x 32.  That's only 5mm larger then my last set of tires but could it be that easy?  No.  Could I just switch out the tires?  No.  That 5mm was too much for the rear fender in it's current adjustment.  This means I had to walk over to the hardware store and pick up some smaller spacers and bolts.  A one hour job became 2-3.

Post Chilly Hilly 2011

I have been taking the bus to work since Chilly Hilly because of this damn cold but as a side note my knee feels completely normal already.  :)
