I’m bad at bike maintenance. (I like to start these newsletters with honesty and introspection, haha)
I mean, I know how. I used to have a bike shop ; ) I actually like re-packing bearings, cleaning and preserving the various components that make my bike work well. But, despite that, each bicycle I own has had a hard life.
Whenever someone sees the gnarly patina all of the bikes possess, I always joke: “it’s a tool, not a jewel”.
As always, thanks for reading!
