sorta wordless wednesday

I cleaned my own drive train yesterday (even though my mom told me I'd someday go blind).
I ride the crap out of my bike and clean/lube it sooooort of regularly, but I was still a little amazed at how much funk was up in there.  The word "ouch" showed up again in today's workouts and I'm pumped to go out and ride my squeaky clean sex machine.  Please ignore the fact that my pants are three sizes too big, I didn't realize that until I was putting them on at the gym post-swim.
In other news, Sofie's hair is in the in-between stage of growing it out and she isn't handling it all that well.
A hat might be a good answer for a while, Sof.

Happy Wednesday, friends!  Have you ever taken your bike apart and then let someone else much more knowledgeable put it back together?

  1. Sweet! I do most of my own wrench and tear my bike apart to clean it. Never removed the crank to clean it, but I guess if Katie can do it, maybe I sould give it a try ;)

  2. I am impressed! And I really wish I knew how to clean and maintain my own bike. She needs a good scrub.

    And I like the shag look on Sof!

  6. I can't even get my bike wheel off! Every time I try I give up and then squish it into my car. Ha.

    Sophie needs some hair gel or mousse. So cute.
