Unsettled Velo Wa (ベロ 和)

Fatties not fitting fine
No Harmony Peace Balance
Rode to Ride my Bike

I rolled out of Chez Snack at approximately 2:45 PM on Sunday with the intention of riding to Lake Waramug on Surly only to get a quarter of a mile away and discover that I was still having wheel alignment issues with those big, honking Vee rubber tires.  Ever since having my rear deraileur serviced I haven't been able to seat the wheel properly.  After returning home and fixing the rear alignment I found that the front was rubbing in the fork, too.  I think the front wheel needs a little trueing.  Since this wasn't going to be the day, I switched to Cannondale Synapse and rode north.

I was in such a rush to get going, I left all my gear in the Ventour Handlebar bag that I wanted to test out and Sunday's weather was not as Summery as it was Saturday making me somewhat uncomfortable but I rode on.  Between my attire and the fact that my chain sounded a bit dry really unsettled my Velo Wa (ベロ 和) that I just did a 20 mile loop.

After I got home, the first think I did was order a pair of Schwalbe Land Cruiser HS 307 700x40c tires that I had been eyeballin' for quite sometime.
