fixing the brakes

Toronto, 2013.09.09

I didn't get around to fixing my brakes on the weekend, so I switched around the damaged brake arm from the front with one at the rear of the bike (leaving the pads backwards) and set off. Knowing that a roll-your-own fix on a bike is rarely a great long term fix, I went directly to the (somewhat expensive) shop downtown where I bought the thing last year, and described the situation. They're going to have to replace the entire front brake set, but it'll be an upgrade and at $60 it'll also bring some peace of mind.

According to my on-going records-keeping, I'll still be up almost $800 over taking cost of taking the TTC these past few years.
