I don’t know what’s going on but all of a sudden it’s almost like I got an overdose of testosterone from all the bike riding I’ve been doing. It’s like all this energy is inside me now.
That rear bike rack that I got for my birthday wasn’t the right size but I figured out how to make it the right size by rigging it to the seat and using old brakes to screw it into the frame at the bottom. Today I went to the store and could hear it creaking where I attached it to the seat post so I drilled a hole into the seat post and put a screw in there to make it more stable.
I also finally thought of a way to get the bar on my home gym back on. When I got it (it’s a Weider Total Body Works 5000) that little plastic thing at the bottom (you see it in the picture from that link) which holds the bungee cords, the screws snapped off of it, when? I have no idea. It was loose in the box. I didn’t send it back because I bought it from Wal*mart’s website and it was shipped to me. So I didn’t want to pay for shipping just to get that replaced so I just left it.
So I was sitting here and I got a brain storm. What if I use the Dremel tool to cut into the screws where they snapped off at the bar so that I can use a flat head screwdriver to unscrew them and take them out and finally get that plastic bungee cord holder back into place. So I did and it worked. OMG!!! Finally! I’ve had that thing for a couple of years now and it always put a bad taste in my mouth that I couldn’t use those bungee cords to add more resistance because I didn’t want to have to keep raising and lowering the darn thing, it’s too heavy to have to do that. It would be easier to use the bungees which is why they put them in there in the first place.
So now I can. Boy, I feel so butch these days lol.
