rubbed the wrong way

Brendan was very nice and brought my bike to and from florida.  Upon getting it back, I noticed a shiny spot on my rear rim: a section must have rubbed against something for the entire trip north, and wore away a section of the aluminum rim.
 
Fortunately, I’ll be going to Ithaca to learn to build wheels soon, so it’s not all bad.
