Bad Luck

I have the worst luck of anybody in this whole universe.  I don’t know what I ever did, maybe my karma sucks really bad.  I went to ride my bike for a minute or 2 so I could see if the bent tire would be ok and as soon as I opened the back gate then set my bike up with the kickstand so I could close the gate, the kickstand went back in and the bike fell and guess what?  My brand new rear view mirror broke right off.  So now I need a new one.  I’ve had bad luck with crazy glue and plastic.  If I glued it with crazy glue then every time I adjust it, it will fall off.  ARGH!

Front Wheel

I got my bike all fixed up and stuff and I just spun the front wheel and apparently it’s bent a bit.  I just spent $76 today and I really can’t afford to buy a new wheel.  I’m sure that I will be fine with a bent wheel until I get my next check in January.  I probably won’t be able to ride my bike for a week anyway so when I do start up again I can just ride with a bent wheel for a while.  I’d rather not ride with a bent wheel but there really isn’t that much I can do about it for right now.  All I can do is just be very safe when riding and hope nothing goes wrong lol.  Or just not ride at all until I get a new front wheel.  This is all costing more than the bike is worth lol.


We went to Snider’s Cyclry today to get the parts for my bike.  I got a new stem that has an extension so that my handlebars will be high enough so I don’t have to raise them as much to get height.  I also had to buy new hand grips because in order to take the old stem off and put the new stem on I have to take everything off the right side of the bar to slide it through.  I don’t really have to take the grip off the other side but then it will be lopsided so I really kinda do have to.  All that was $25

Then we went and got my glasses frame which was $35.

And lastly we went to Target to buy a new computer because the magnet fell off the spokes when I had my accident and when I was putting the bike in the car today to go to Snider’s the wire snapped so I needed a new one.  But instead of buying another 20 function computer for $15 I bought the 12 function because I don’t need that computer, just the parts.  The 12 function computer was only $10 and I would’ve spent that on the magnet plus $2 on eBay which would’ve been a total waste of money.  While I was in the bike department I bought a new rear view mirror that goes on the rubber grip on the outside of the bike, not on the inside so I will now be able to see and I bought gloves with the tips missing.
