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.

So far, I've found no occasion to use the Bordo lock. I park in a secure garage during the day and my chain lock feels adequate for that, and for quick runs into the grocery store. At night, I park in my back yard, which while not very secure, IS invisible from the street, and there I have no place to affix the Bordo.

But I carry it around on the frame, and I'm sure I'll find a use for it one of these days!
