|Opening day Thursday at MMU. A bit foggy in the morning, campus looks pretty as I cross it.|
On Tuesday, I picked up Clarence from the bike shop, where a new derailleur was installed during the free 30-day checkup. I also bought a new rear view mirror, and installed it Wednesday.
But a half mile into the ride to campus, the glass popped out and shattered.
|Me in new mirror Friday before ride to campus. Swung by Cedar Lake, below. Nice week for biking.|
It was Friday before I had time to take the mirror back to the bike shop, but they cheerfully replaced it. I didn’t want the same style—the first mirror had been hard to force inside my handlebars, so I got a round mirror of the same style I used to have on Francis. While a bit more complex, it fit easily and snugly—and has stayed on for three days.
I think we have a winner, in the mirror department.
