When I walked by my Redline last night I thought it looked . . . sad. Like me, I guess the onset of fall has made for a case of the blues. I figured something new and shiny might make me, I mean the bike, feel better. I picked up a pair of these today:
Yeah, they cost more than my frame. I don't care. My old Avid brake levers were getting kind of sloppy. They have been on a number of single speeds over the years, and a crash (THE crash) last winter bent the crap out of the left one. I bent it back with a pipe, but it's looking a little suspect. You know, teeny, tiny little cracks. Dangerous. I NEEDED to replace them.
So have I justified it enough?
