It's almost Friday

I rode Eleanor O to Clever Cycles today at lunchtime to have a couple of small adjustments made (notably, getting the brake levers a little less manly a distance from the handlebar grips).

While there, I got a rear-view mirror, an additional lock for those paranoid parking situations, and a new pannier-style basket.

The lock looks like something out of Transformers.

The basket is deep, grocery-sized and woven of natural baskety fiber, and hangs from the rear rack. It sticks up a bit, and it wasn't till I got on and started riding back to work that I realized it bumps into my butt. Or, you know, vice-versa. I think moving the hooks on the basket will be easier and faster than losing 30 lbs, so that's what I'm gonna do.

If this workday ever ends it will be a miracle. *looks at clock* Okay, I'm leavin'. Cross your fingers that the Muse of Writing Chapter 31 will visit me this evening.

GOOOOOOOO, MUUUUUUSE!

So, do you still have Clyde, too, or is he going to a new home? I've gotten attached to the old guy, sight unseen.

I'm keeping Clyde. There will be plenty of times, I'm sure, when I want a faster bike and don't need any cargo capacity, and if I'm going to go car-free altogether, which I'm close to doing, it's a good idea to have a backup bike.

The Muse of Chapter 31, by the way, is back after a brief vacation, and seems to be in very good spirits.
