In conjunction with The Fair Trade Project, a local organization who's simple, but important mission is to support people and fair trade, we at Rusted Chain will be helping out with this event. A few of us will be there with our tools for some pre-race tuneups. Come on out, and support a few great local initiatives to help make a global impact.
Registration is at 3 PM at Austin's Coffee on Fairbanks. The race will begin at 4 PM. It's $5 to register, and there are tons of great prizes to be had. Don't feel intimidated if this is your first race, as this one is not about who is the fastest, but who has the best poker hand. Come enjoy great people, make new friends, ride your bike, and enjoy some good tunes at the after party.
As usual Rusted Chain will also be open tomorrow (Sunday) at the space from 3 PM to 7 PM for those that don't know the space is at the Public Storage on Colonial and Maguire. We provide free access to tools, and knowledge of how to work on your bike. Feel free to stop by.
See you soon!

I learned a lot of stuff i sort of took for intuitive until it really came down to dailing; involving cantilever brakes. I've only really ever had to adjust spring tension in brakes a couple random times (mostly with bmx-style u-brakes) and kind of felt like a fish out of water on the c'dale - it wasn't until we consulted the good book (zinn and the art of road bike maintenance) that some light was shed on these quirky stopping devices.
Elise made some really cool labels for the small parts drawers, but we'll need some tape to affix them.
word to your whole family.
