It Was A Bike-Fixin’ Sunday!

I did a bit o’ the Bike Kitchen thing this morning, in the comfort of my frontyard.

It’s going to be interesting to see how different the bike rides all reconfigured. Not just with the new seat and tires and bottom bracket, but some dimensional stuff as well. Nothing major, but I’ve gone up to a 52-tooth chainring from a 48, which will make me slower off the line but give me a bit greater cruising speed at the other end. The cranks are a different size, too; down from 170mm in length to 165mm.

Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
