the broken spoke

Toronto, 2018.05.09

A spoke broke on Friday; when I got it fixed, the mechanics told me the problem was "too much weight". Now, it happened as I was cruising down our street during the wind storm. But it seems to have happened due to my sedentary lifestyle during this long cold and snowy winter.

But, it was prepared for free due to the wheel being less than three weeks old. A silver lining. And a silver spoke on a black wheel; the fellow suggested that I keep track of the replacement by using a silver spoke. I suspect he didn't have - or didn't want to part with - a black spoke.
