RTW 20.01.2009 - with Schwinn Mesa

Tuned my re-built Schwinn Mesa last night. Okay, technically very, very early today at 0005 hours.
It's a bike dedicated for RTW. Tried to fit a rear view mirror, but to no avail. The handlebar hollow is too small to fit the mirror holder.
Tried a first run right away, and it felt really different. I'm using an old Ø25.4 handlebar with 50mm 0° stem. Awkward.
Ehm ehm... upgraditis started to make me itch. Anybody wants to let go a wide aluminium handlebar real cheap? And a mounting bracket with sensor for Cateye Velo8 as well.

I went out at 0658 hours. Without my Velo8 attached, I could not log any data. Except that I started a stopwatch on my ultra versatile handphone.

Stats today (to):
  • Riding to work, distance covered 12.6 km. More or less, as usual.
  • Average speed: no data.
  • Max speed: quite fast.
  • Travel time: not sure. My stopwatch clocked 42:15:91. Including the waiting at traffic lights, etc.
Number of good doggies: 2. No signs of those Rottweilers. I wish they are fine.

You can get Kalloy alloy handlebar merely under RM20 from Samy ;)
