For learning how to fix your own bike, Ann Arbor's own co-op, Common Cycle, is a fantastic resource. Open Sundays 11-3 at 416 W Huron.
Spent the morning volunteering as a mechanic for the first time.
Observations: if you get there at 11 it's pretty quiet. After 12:30 and you might have to wait.
Cool group of people there!

Part of the pleasure of this weekend's dirt road bike ride was the satisfaction of my new tubeless tire setup. My first time attempting tubeless and it went quite well, and I'm happy with the result - a full pound(!) lighter for each wheel.
I was going to pay the local bike shop to do it, but then I wouldn't be able to fix it in the future.
Thinking about mens fashion this weekend after that podcast. I'm really a shlub. I don't mind being a shlub, but would like to be a more fashionable shlub if that's a thing.
my problem is always that edge where fashion becomes costume. Would rather not veer into costume territory. I don't have the self confidence for that.
One of the coolest thing about the bike rally today was the variety of bikes now - 7 families on like 9 different bikes.
when we bought our Bakfiets about 4 years ago, there were really only two front loading options, and two longtails. And electric drives we're just beginning to be a thing.
E-cargo bikes are a revelation.
