today i received the new bunch of wheel parts. velo orange security skewers, michelin airstop tubes, and schwalbe marathon plus 700×32 tires. these wheels are going to last forever! i had the velo orange security skewers on my long haul trucker and they made everything seem a little more secure. they come with a security wrench that also happens to be the same size as some other hex screws on your bicycle(i believe it’s 5mm). rather than carry that around separate though, i used a small drill bit and put a hole in my trixie wrench. i love tools that can do more than they were originally designed for.
today also marks the calendar at nine weeks remaining until start. i feel like i need to do more.
