Somebody Fixed My Brake

I have a trek bike – a 4200 or something like that. It has a drum brake on the back wheel which has been getting more spongy and less effective. Almost to the point of being useless and given the state of my front brake pads, it’s something I had put on my list of things to fix. I hate that list.

drum-brakeBeing a good citizen and signed-up member of the movement towards self-sustainability, I cycle to work and on Friday I went over to my bike to ride home and found that it had been tampered with.

The back brake had been adjusted. And suddenly it worked perfectly again.

I was, as you may imagine, rather surprised by this. And during my cycle home into the setting sun, I had a smile on my face and I secretly thanked my anonymous and selfless bike fixer.

Thank you whoever you are.
