A Day....

This is the way I woke up

This was the problem of the day. Though we did just have that bearing cleaning post, still little cartriges after a lot of miles do blow out.

With the help of a trusty tent peg I found at a camp spot on Cotopaxi. I tapped out what was left of the the busted bearing (seen on left) 

But the issue was, I havent been carring a 9mm socket to tighten everything back on with. So I visited this well stocked little bici shed in Humachuco and bought a 3 way socket wrench. 

Then I hung out and chatted about this cargo bike's leaf spring suspension retrofit. A.K.A.- block of wood being installed with a hammer.  And yes, those are brake shoes made from and old tire. I love Peru

A little visit to a work shop

One 9mm socket for pedal fixins. I have no 8mm or 10mm bolts. Why carry more than you need to?

and then I hung out with this dude on my way to get supplies and head for the hills.


  1. for a fella who's been out on the road for going on ten months yer looking pretty well off in the pounds department.


  2. You woudn't say that if you saw me wearing a pair of speedos. I'm about as skin and bones as I've ever been. Eating like a mule too.
