my bike has brakes again

Toronto, 2013.04.18

I've paid someone to reinstall the rear brake on my bike. The pads were shot (after three months of service on the front wheel, they were rotated last year to the back) and the cable kept disengaging from the brake handle, so I simply removed the whole thing last October. But it slowly started to feel maybe a tad unsafe so I chickened out and took the thing to MEC across the street from my office.

    Illusions commend themselves to us because they save us pain and allow us to enjoy pleasure instead. We must therefore accept it without complaint when they sometimes collide with a bit of reality against which they are dashed to pieces.
