Accents......

6:59 am - Monday - November 18th - Ramona, CA - 50° F, 39% humidity, wind 6 mph out of the east by southeast......clear, blue skies today with a forecast high of 89° F.

I spent most of Sunday morning working on my new Haibike SDURO.  The Rock Brothers pedals, ergonomic handlebar grips (both red) arrived from Amazon Saturday, and wanted to install them on the bike. I love being able to add these color accents that play off the existing colors on the bike.....it just makes it pop!




Once those items were installed I transferred my Garmin GPS based cyclo computer to the new bike.  I like this cyclo computer because it displays all 8 data points (riding time, speed, time of day, distance traveled, average speed, calories burned, elevation, grade %) in which I am interested on one screen, whereas the Yamaha PW LCD display unit, which is hardwired into the system, only gives you speed, and trip mileage on one screen.....


.....finally, I moved the seat back on the seat rails as far as it would go so I don't feel like I'm right on top of the handlebars. I've just about got the bike dialed in to where I want it.  I haven't adjusted the air pressure in the air shocks (front and rear) to my weight as I've been getting used to the bike......I'll work on that next weekend.  I'm also going to replace the Haibike factory seat with something more to my liking, but that will come later.

By the time I returned home TLE had returned from Stater Brothers where she stocked up on some necessities for the next week.  Within minutes I had the outdoor TV setup, and was sitting in my anti gravity chair watching NFL football, and that is I remained, for better (mostly better), or worse, the rest of the day.  There were a couple of nice naps added to the mix for good measure.

Around 4 pm it began to get chilly outside, so I headed inside for the duration of the afternoon.  We have one more day of high 80's temps on Monday, and them the temperatures plunge into the 50's for two, or three rainy days, and then settle into the 60's for another 10 days, or so.  The balmy afternoons, and evenings are just about gone.

Thanks for stopping by!
