Yesterday evening I figured that I would install a pair of SKS fenders on my bike. They've been sitting in my garage for a while. It didn't take long to realize that the rear supports on my rack are spaced very close together and aren't compatible with the front support stays on the fenders. After alot of frustrating and fruitless effort, I decided that I would just replace the rack. I was going to do it anyway. I'm sure I could modify the fender in some way, but to be honest, I just wasn't up to it.
It seemed like such a simple job.
I stopped by a clothing resale shop the other day with the hope of finding vintage wool sweaters for winter riding, or even a couple of items for an upcoming tweed ride. Unfortunately they hadn't put out their winter clothing yet. I didn't find any tweed either. I did find this Columbia fishing vest. With all the pockets and storage, I thought this might be a useful item of clothing to wear on my next bike camping trip. I can keep all of my frequently used small items in the pockets and free up some space in my panniers. It was under $10 so I snatched it up.
I also picked up this practically new Filson hunting shirt for under $10. I learned about this company through Archival Clothing.
