Bank Robbery VS Bike Upgrades
Unfortunately, I haven’t won the lottery. So that custom built Project One Trek Madone 6.9 WSD road bike I’ve been dreaming about, will not be materializing anytime soon. And option #2, becoming a professional bank robber, might interfere with family life, so I’ll have to put that scenario on hold also.
Ceramic Bearings for Bottom Bracket
Looks like option #3, upgrading certain components on my current road bike, is the winner. I have a really great frame, a Trek Madone 6.5 – full carbon, very light weight carbon frame. I’ve been thinking about upgrading to ceramic bearings on the bottom bracket. The one problem with the Trek is that I’ve had to get the bearings replaced twice in my bike, since buying it in 2008. Strange problem that shouldn’t be happening. Gunk and water keeps getting in the bearings, and my husband takes really good care of my bike. We practically have our own bike shop in our back yard. Luckily our local bike store has gotten the bearings replaced twice under warranty.
