I took a few photos of the mess that my bike has become in the past few days of light rain. The leaf mush is building up on the bike. I'm not sure why, but I don't want to clean it off yet. I like the looks of the mush. However, I don't like the gray sidewalls of my tires. They are supposed to be tan. I guess that's why the color of sidewalls doesn't matter.
I changed the handlebars and stem on the blue commuter bike. I replaced the old stem which was a threadless-to-threaded stem adapter with a shim to a correctly fitting quill stem. So the old setup was an adapted adaptor that creaked no matter how much lubrication I applied. With the new setup -- no more creaks. The new bars feel nice too. Little changes make riding more fun sometimes. Compare this to my previous, complicated setup. I think it looks a bit simpler now.
My daughter was giving me artistic direction while I was shooting these photos. She arranged this last photo of us in the mirror. Click on the photo to see the enlarged version and you'll see her smiling in the mirror behind me.
