My first thought was to blame the gods for throwing so many curve balls at me that is was impossible to keep up. That is only partially true. In truth, I had seen this coming and had made plans to buy a new rim and spokes and spokes build a new wheel as a spingtime project. Yes, I know. I really should get around to stopping procrastinating.
So today I will endure public transit and after work take the bus to OCB and buy a good second hand wheel with a 700mm rim. This will buy me time so that when time and finances permit, I can a some new higher end rims, spokes and hubs and build new wheels befitting my Roberts.
