Today I’ve been busy with bike maintenance. My girlfriend’s bike’s chain was so stretched that it was practically dragging on the ground. I was planning to just replace it on the run, but in the end I spent almost the whole afternoon on it. This is an old bike that my girlfriend uses for her daily rides to the station; the bolts that hold the chain-guard on were rusted tight, and some of them snapped off when I unscrewed them. But finally everything was back in good condition, with the new chain in place. I also lubricated the chain on my Koga Miyata and cleaned the derailleurs thoroughly.
I didn’t have much time left to spend on the Versatile, but I did manage to clean it and repair the hand brake. I removed the rod that holds the little red cap and tightened up the little cap with a bolt and some washers; the handbrake is working well again.
