New tires for the Hammer.
Its raining. No ride. I decided after humming and hawing for a couple of weeks that I would get some road tires to replace the fat knobby ones I have had since day one on the bike. Went to Reynolds Cycle (at Meg Dr. And Exeter Rd) the other day and after buying something postal, I looked at what they have. 10000 sq feet is what they have. And a parts service department the size of some bike shops. And equally important, as I work the hours they are open except for wed/thurs, they said they could put on tires and new tubes in same day service style. Which the downtown guys can't do. I decided that I would go for it. I dropped off the bike at around 1130 or so (after watching the TdF) and they called an hour later while I was doing laundromat peoplewatching ( I have a good character study done now of the scape goat) to say that it was good to go. Now I have to be patient as its really wet outside!
Reynold Cycle 20 Meg Drive (North side of Meg and Exeter) 519-680-5100
Alessandro Petacchi won his 3rd stage win in 4 attempts so far with a pour-it-on explosive sprint right at the end of the stage. With 200m to go he was 5th. Then he launched and handily won. But it was not enough to capture the yellow jersey from PEna of USPS. The order from yesterday is still the same. USPS has enough of a lead that the results from today didn't change. Top 8 overall are USPS riders.
