I took my bike in to the shop to have the chain and sprockets replaced today. I would have done it myself, but the cost for the service was about what the cost for the tool would have been. On recommendation of the shop, I picked up rear brake pads. I replaced them today, maybe I waited a little long?



Now they can get back to not providing much stopping power... albeit at the right thickness.

Heh... at least the old girl is riding smoother with a chain that isn't stretched past it's serviceable life. I'm just glad I was responsible enough to replace it BEFORE it just broke.

Project Celica looks on in the background...

I commute a lot on mine, and got in the habit of doing equal braking, I'm sure I'd die in a hurry on a track. The front pads got replaced about 1500 miles back though, so the rear definitely outlasted them.

I could use new pads as well.
