repairing a rear wheel

Toronto, 2015.05.20

Tonight in our cycle repair class we dismantled the rear wheel; really getting comfortable with this, now. One of the things I found odd was that the rear wheel uses larger – and fewer – ball bearings than the front wheel. Apparently there are two more sizes in the pedals and head tube. I guess it's different bearings for different folks.

Overall, well pleased with the cycle repair course that the Toronto District School Board puts on.

... I'll let you in on a secret. Big people are exactly the same as little people. They're selfish, squabbling children whose motivations are jealousy and greed. No one becomes big when the hit adulthood. They just become better at hiding how small they are.
