Well decided to finally take Katrina in for her new chain, and while I was at it had them do a full cleaning/tune up. She looks amazing all spiffed up! The chain did end up needing replacing, but that’s ok, as the new ones should last a lot longer.
Here is the down side, my rear tire is ruined. Not to the point that I can’t use it but it has some wobble/hop due to it being out of round. It is interesting, like my body, Katrina’s has suffered from to much excess weight. Though we try and fix things, sometimes the damage has already been done. I look at her wheel though as more of a badge of honor, she gave of herself to help me. I plan to replace the wheel next year, but I won’t be throwing it away!
