  • 13,480.2 miles on 10/30/2022 : I replaced the 700cx32 tires for 700cx28. At Trek Henderson they measured the 32s while installed on the new carbon fiber wheels and they expanded to nearly 40cm. The Aeolus Pros I purchased are made for 28 so it only made sense to size down. I enjoy the look much more and they don’t feel any different than the 32s. I’m keeping the set of 32s for future use on my second Pacific Coast Bike Tour attempt. Only 3,243.7 miles on the pair.
  • 13,264.7 miles on 10/24/2022 : I was loading Shadow onto the Thule to come home from a weekend in Southern California, when I happened to look down at the rear wheel where he was strapped down and saw a crack in the wheel spreading out from one of the nipples. No idea when it started or how it happened. I bit the bullet and pulled the trigger on a new set of carbon fiber wheels. I am keeping the original front. I may use it next year in my second Pacific Coast Bike Tour attempt.
  • 12,400.9 miles on 9/22/2022 : Replaced brakes pads. Rear pads worn to near zero. Return spring would rub and bind on rear disc. Front pads near 40% remaining. 4,570.5 miles logged on the set.
  • 10,435.7 miles on 4/23/2022 : Rear derailleur cable broke five miles into Tour de Summerlin. Had Swanny’s replace both front and rear cables. 7,045.2 miles logged on the pair.
  • 10,236.5 miles on 4/3/2022 : Taken into Swanny’s for a lube and tune. Partially because of the mileage, and also to make sure everything checked out for May’s tour. Installed two new Gatorskins for the tour.
  • 8,197.4 miles on 1/26/2022 : Replaced brake discs. 8,197.4 miles logged on the set.
  • 7,830.4 miles on 1/9/2022 : Replaced brake pads. 5,231.5 miles logged on the set.
  • 5,788.7 miles on 9/10/2021 : Replaced rear tire with a new one. The tire had a small hole in the sidewall that had an interior support patch, but it had started expanding recently. Felt it was best to swap it out to be safe.
  • 4,515.5 miles on 7/18/2021 : Swanny’s tune up. Lubed and tightened everything. Was having problems with head tube ISOSpeed decoupler loosening up again. Seems like this is going to be an every 2,000-2,500 mile thing. Swapped out the chain after 4,515.5 miles.
  • 4,399.2 miles on 7/13/2021 : Replaced both Bontrager R2 Hard-Case Lite, aramid bead, 60 tpi, 700x32c tires. Arrived home on 7/12/2021 and rear tire burst. 4,399.2 miles logged on the pair. Added a pair of Continental Gatorskins on loan from Swanny’s.
  • 3,660.5 miles on 7/7/2021 : Replaced SQLab 612 Ergowave Active S-Tube Saddle, 14cm. Both tubes snapped. 3,049.23 logged on the saddle.
  • 3,390.5 miles on 5/25/2021 : Swanny’s Cycles replaced right shifter under warranty.
  • 2,598.9 miles on 4/18/2021 : Replaced brake pads. 2,598.9 miles logged on the pair.
