    Today I repacked the bearings in my front wheel. They were not completely dry, but I feel bad that I left them this long! It’s been a few years.

    I’m trying to build a list of all tools I need to work on this bike, so now I add the following: 13 mm cone spanner; adjustable spanner; and a bit of bent wire to hook bearings out with. Also some grease and a few clean rags.

    Thought I might want a magnetic pick, and tweezers, but actually it was fine without. I used to replace the balls whenever I did the bearings, but I’ve since read that that’s overkill, and certainly they looked fine on close inspection. Far better than the cones and cups anyway, which had some small pitting in a couple of spots (inspecting the cups was a bit tricky, because I didn’t remove the metal dust covers). The rubber dust covers are fine, although I don’t know how many times they’ll take being stretched off and on, they do have that sort of dusty old-rubber look to them now.

    It’s Hackathon day 2, and I’ve nearly wrapped up my first draft of a pretty hacky system for editing documentation pages in ToolDocs. It’s fun learning the GitLab API, although that’s also making me question a bunch of assumptions I made about this project in the beginning! It’s seeming more like it’d be better to just build the whole thing as effectively a custom UI to GitLab. But we’ll see…
