I took Froinlavin in this morning, which meant carefully re-installing its new MKS Lambda pedals. Froinlavin doesn't appreciate being as loaded down as the Jolly Roger, but managed fine.

Some of the roads that cross Albany are one-way, so the route to campus is slightly different from the route from campus. In general, the trip to campus went much more smoothly, though. I decided to try out a short detour through the Albany Rural Cemetery. What a beautiful spot. However, it isn't particularly convenient, due to a brief gravel stretch and a low chain fence, so I don't think I'll bother going through the cemetery in general.

8.3 miles in 50 minutes. The ride home yesterday was 6.78 miles - didn't note how long it took.

I am back to hobo showering in the restroom for the time being. I am also thinking I should start a Siena Bicycle Commuters Club, even if I'm the only member, heh.

I am thinking that maybe now is the time to do a total overhaul on the Jolly Roger - see if the seatpost can get unstuck, deal with the wacky shifting, maybe see about a new paint job or at least a reasonable touch-up.

WRT the JR seatpost, flip it upside down, pull out the bb, and dump some penetrating oil into the seat tube so it can work its way in from both sides.

What do you think of the MKS pedals?
