05/21/2010: "Minor Matters"
Funny how the little things can matter sometimes...for weeks now, the saddle on my back up bike, Trevor Wong, has been making a slight snapping sound every time I unweight it, be it to stand on the pedals or just going over a bump.

I found it so annoying that I was avoiding the finally, after trying hard to locate the sound, I gave up, turned the bike over, and sprayed some White Lightning wax lube into the area where the saddle rails fitted into the saddle base--my primary but unconfirmed suspect in this crime of clicking.

Aah...blessed silence! Nothing else has changed, but the bike feels better now.

That's us silly humans, though.
