Little Things

It's the little things that matter, although big things matter too.

Either way, I changed the brake pads on my fixie (that's what other people call it) and now it stops like someone threw a stick in the front wheel. The close up photo also exposed lots of ugliness that appears when a bike doesn't get cleaned very often.

in the photo of the new pads they appear to be on backwards. the opening should face the back of the bike on the front.

Thanks, Tom. I noticed the same thing the other day and reversed them.
