Paws on the Tour de Edelstein

for web tikit and dog

Monday morning. My fan gallery has arrived. He gets to the ride early to get a good view of the corner. Sure, it’s not a manhole cover in the rain during the Moline Criterium, but loose pea gravel tends to make for interesting handling, especially on 16-inch wheels.

He has no empathy.

  1. Nice picture. A couple side notes: a month or so ago, I stopped to help a lady in Edelstein who had a flat tire on a folder. Then, last night I dreamed I was trying to buy a folder in a pawn shop.

    Coincidence? I think not!

    I see you’re abiding by the time-honored rule of keeping the bike between you and the hostile beast. šŸ˜‰

    It’s nice to see your tikit out, finally. Most of your late posts/pictures have been of big bikes.

    • I do have a mix of steeds. It’s interesting to compare and contrast. The one thing I’m absolutely sure of is the many different creaks, clicks and other noises these widely different bikes generate. If simplicity has a big benefit, it is that you solve for unwanted noise once. I’ll have a post on the tandem’s bottom bracket soon that stresses the point.

    Ah, stresses the point – that should be easy to fix. Doesn’t Park have a tool for that?!? Oh, and that Dog – I think it’s got a lean and hungry look. Or it’s just thirsty and “you have water bottles, Mister?”
