Now to enjoy the fruits of my labor! The new chain and cassette brought back the life in my tired old mountain bike, so I dusted off my tired old legs and pushed them up the mountain. It’s such a wonderful feeling reaching the top, sweat dripping like a faucet, lungs tired, legs tired, smiling muscles tired. I love it.

One of my passions is biking, but I am terrible at maintaining my bikes. I let this one go for sooooo long on a worn out cassette and a stretched out chain that it was driving me crazy. It had begun shifting so poorly that I was finally motivated to make a change. It turns out that new chains and cassettes really aren’t that expensive, and aren’t that difficult to install. I should have done this a long time ago!
