Bike Lights

Bike Lights

   I have two lights on my bike, mainly because I don't trust either one, and for good reason.  A few days ago the large light stopped working because the wire going into the back became frayed.  Two weeks latter the same thing happened to the other light.  Both were discovered while riding and disabled the light.  However, since I have two lights I was always able to switch to the alternative.
New and old battery

New and old battery

   Last month my buddy Zen told me the back up battery on the Emerald Dragon had started to bulge.  That means it is dying.  I order a replacement and had it shipped to him.  He sent me a picture of the new battery next to the old.  The swap went fine and didn't disrupt the system.  Thanks Zen!  The Emerald Dragon currently has a continuous runtime of 850 days.
Repair In Progress

Repair In Progress

   A few days ago I was riding home from the coffee shop and the cellphone clip on my bike fell off.  My phone wasn't in it, but clearly I hadn't noticed it had become loss.  The fall crack the support arm.  So I'm attempting to glue it.
   Jan'vember has lifted and returned to November this week.  Temperatures were more typical for the month and I rode into work today for the first time in two weeks.  I had switched to my winter tires, and I'm glad I did.  The roads were very slippery this morning.
