Last weekend we brought my bike to the shop for them to remove that stubborn pedal. It took a little elbow grease, actual grease, and determination. After some time, the bike mechanic was able to finally get it off. Hooray!!!
While there, I decided to leave my bike with them to get a tuneup and wrap the handlebars. All of those hours on the trainer this winter really took a toll on my handlebars. I must have a death grip because the tape was in desperate need of replacing.
Nick picked up my bike yesterday on his way home from the airport. She sure is shiny and looks brand new again. The chain sparkles and the handlebar wrap nearly glows in the dark.
