today I disassembled my bike’s front brake to repair a problem – what a satisfying feeling, to take something physical apart, determine each piece’s purpose, and track down a problem.

@ashfurrow bike repair makes me feel almost mechanically competent

@ashfurrow I have a dumpster bike sitting in the backyard waiting for some TLC.

I plan on leaving it at work for downtown outings. That way I don’t have to worry a too much about it being stolen. It’s gonna be unattractive. Oh, it’ll also have an AirTag hidden on it. 😀

@fahrni this “use a bike you wouldn’t worry about being stolen” is how *everyone* does it in Amsterdam 🤣

@ashfurrow now imagine if you could do that in software
