I shamefully neglect of my outside bicycle... I didn't fix it up when the weather got better like I intended. The brakes have been sticking for months but I haven't done anything except squeeze the levers until they softened up again. (The back brake stopped working entirely last week.) The fortunate side-effect is that on the outdoor bike, I ride extra slowly and cautiously... and not far. Therefore, when the cable finally snapped, I was on my way home and I wasn't out of control. Yay.
I made it to the grocery store, bought lunch and cycled the remaining 200 meters home. Brakes are for sissies.
Just kidding. The front brake is fixed now!
Anyone want a neglected outdoor bicycle? No lights, wonky fender, working front brake.
