patch, repair, wrench

shakedown

This current round of work on the Cannondale is pretty extensive, and it's leading up to quite a long trip. So one shakedown ride is not enough. So far I've put in 75 miles in four rides, and found problems with the fender positioning, the rear derailleur adjustment, the front brake lever, the rack-top bag, the rear water-bottle bracket, and I don't even remember what else. And there are still things undone from the original list.
