The bike looks good with a new front shoe.

Getting the bike ready

After waterproofing gear last week, it’s refreshing to do the kind of work that shows a result. Here’s a new front tire, clean battery box, renewed air filter, and clean brakes! I’m looking forward to a boost in fuel economy.

The front tire change is a tricky one, and I owe a thank you to Eric and Taff for their help. I tried in vain to use all two arms and two legs of myself to lever three different tire irons at the same time. Sometimes you really do need more hands. Thanks, guys!
