For volunteering at SoPo.
The news is out and Atlanta Streets Alive is coming on Sunday April 20th in Historic West End.
2.7 miles of closed streets for walking, running, roller balding, biking, and more. Come out and enjoy the fun with us. We’ll be looking out for our friends at WeCycle during Streets Alive.
Bike parade starts at 130. Streets closed from 2-6.
When you hit your brakes and hear a metal on metal grinding sound, it’s time to check your brake pads.
In this case the brakes pad were worn down to the metal underneath the brake pad. With the brake pad metal exposed, it was grinding against the metal rim. It actually made a rough groove on the rim.
Time to replace the brake pads.
I’ve made a rear fender using the same materials now here’s the front fender to make a pair.
I wanted to copy a front fender I already hadnwhich attaches to the downtube with Velcro. It’s a pretty simple design and very portable.
Here the materials I used; FedEx box, old inner tube, the original fender, scissors, and a pen.
Using the original fender as a guide, I traced out the shape onto the FedEx box. If you don’t have a fender to trace, any kite shape will do. If it’s too wide after attaching it in the bike, you can always cut it.
Yes, I made a point of getting as much of the FedEx logo onto the fender.
On Saturday before the shop opened, Ann from the Jackson, MS Community Bike Collective just happened to be finishing up brunch at Stone Soup Kitchen. SoPo invited her in to check out the shop.
Thanks to Ann for stopping by. Glad to meet new friends wherever we are. Check out Spokes when you can.
