My New Single-Speed Bike

22 Nov

Yesterday, on my way out of town, I had the rear shifter paddle snap off roughly fifteen minutes into the ride. Luckily the shifter internals froze in the 19, so I was able to complete the 6 hours in the 53×19. I’m just glad it didn’t fall into the 11 and kill the rest of my ride. SRAM has a great warranty policy, so the shifter will be replaced.

In the mean time, I can’t miss out on quality training, so I rigged up an older 9-speed bar end shifter while I wait for the warrantied shifter to come in.
