Deathtrap (my bike) is in trouble.
I was riding home last night and the back tyre blew.
I took him to my local bike dealer this morning and I think he must have seen me coming.
“What have you done with this bike?” he exclaimed before I was even in the shop.
“This is a Raleigh, it is a good bike. Old but good. Like me. This will not live the winter. You have to give it to me. I will help.
“The chain is dead, the tyre is dead. This bike is nearly dead.”
I felt my heart sink. Before I even opened my mouth I knew that I would agree to whatever he suggested.
“Do what you need to”, I muttered and walked away.
So, while I wait for Deathtrap to be brought back from the brink, here’s something I found earlier by new favourite band, Grizzly Bear.
