Each eye a storm trooper

The photograph was taken on April 2nd.

I commuted by bicycle every day this week, and so far this year I have got 1519 km riding the bicycle. The bicycle got rather dirty, and I did some cleaning today. One thing I don't like to do is cleaning the chain, so I bought a Park Tool CM5.2 Cyclone Chain Cleaner to help. Today I tried it for the first time, and it worked well, much better than I thought.

Before buying the tool I read some reviews on the net. Another such tool is Pedro's Chain Pig, but the Park Tool was cheaper (at discount), so I bought it. I'm not sure of the durability, but it seems to be robust enough. Cleaning the chain a couple of times each month is no longer a difficult task at all.

Fine, Juha. I love how you give that "old" subject of a flower picture a new twist.

Thank you, Markus!

We had quite a warm winter, and thus spring wasn't quite such a big change as it sometimes is, but it is of course great to see the seasonal changes that are happening. In any case, one tends to forget what spring feels like, and it is a time of discovering novel things.
