Ride home for Friday, 09 September

Dropped my bike off at the bike shop to get the rear wheel trued. Went down to MEC and got a new bike computer and rear light. Naturally, on the way home the bike computer functioned perfectly. Regardless, I've changed it, so hopefully I shouldn't have any more problems with dropouts (until the battery in the computer dies, at least!) It'll be interesting to see how it copes in the winter, too - last year the wireless computer had problems around the freezing point, but oddly it was fine as soon as it got a few degrees below.

Picked up my bike from the bike shop, apparently every single spoke was loose. I'm definitely considering getting a spoke tension meter; they're a touch pricey, $80 from MEC, but that's 8 sessions of truing at the bike shop, which isn't all that many...
