Last Thursday, my Road I.D. sport band, in black, arrived in the mail. I took pictures of the packaging, as well as the promotional material included with the band, but my photos turned out badly. Still, bad pictures I can find are better than good pictures I cannot find if they can be used for illustrative purposes. Two of the pictures I took could not be salvaged, but the others were useable. Here they are:
The state of our housekeeping, here at Burnt Down Plantation Estates located in Lovely Stepford, Tennessee, is such that I didn’t keep the packaging after photographing it. Because of that clutter reduction strategy, there was not a photo re-do.
Once I removed the band from its card, the engraved metal plate was easily migrated from the original bright yellow band to the black band. I wore it for the first time last Saturday and again yesterday. Haven’t been getting as many rides in over the past week or so, as I had been previously.
Below are photos of the yellow band, left, and the black band, right. I normally wear the Road I.D. on my left wrist so its reflective properties have a chance to increase my visibility when riding.
The Miyata’s rolling a lot more smoothly now that I’ve had the hubs serviced – grease and bearings – by the guys at MOAB in Murfreesboro. Good work done at a reasonable price.
Here are a few pictures from my rides last Saturday and yesterday:
