First night on the rollers

First night on the rollers and I learned a few things:
  • Tighten the bolts down, all the way. The last thing you want is to hear some rattling and looked down to see a nut holding on the front drum unscrewing itself.
  • If you're watching stand-up comedy on Netflix, have a good escape plan. Because when they get you right in your funny bone, that's when you eat it.
  • Clear your riding area from obstructions. 5 minutes in I hear my rear tire rubbing something. I peer back (ever so cautiously) to see the wheelbarrow handle. The wheelbarrow handle!
  • Don't video yourself unless you're ready to spend the next hour and a half with an allen wrench and a pair of calipers. You know you look good, just leave it alone.
