A good bucket died today.
For no other reason than my vanity. (Sure, there's some functionality involved, but did it really have to be blue?)
Look, I think bike aesthetics are somewhat important. I'm just not sure where the act of murdering an inanimate object (that also looks quite nice) in order to provide a small incremental addition to your (subjective) bike bling scheme lands you, karmically. I suppose that I will find out, and probably not so gently.
In other news, the new tires seem fine. I couldn't begin to tell you if they are awesome or not, but I am fairly confident that they don't suck. There's a good amount of comfort, just in this.
