Tailwind!

A steady tailwind, temps in 70's, bright sun, clear sky, low humidity, riding with a friend. Priceless.

Well it was almost perfect. Despite our speedy ride home, I've been having shifting problems on the rear derailleur for several days now. I popped in to the BD Arnold instead of going home (I live a mile from the shop). I had an overhaul about a month ago and assumed it was just cable stretch. I was hoping for quick adjustment by the duty mechanic. They had one in the stand and two in line ahead of so I left it and walked home, still hoping to retrieve it before closing time. Well they called and said it might be the shifter, they want the lead mechanic to look at it in the morning. Here's hoping it something simple or at least something under warranty....

  1. I hope it is something simple. Where can we find a bicycle mechanics class?

  2. I asked them about classes a few months back and they said they were thinking about offering them in the new Speed Studio, but I haven't seen any details yet.

  3. Capital Bicycle in Annapolis offered a class over the winter, and they are threatening to offer it again when things slow down in the fall. I'll keep my eyes open for dates. I would like to take the class and not be at the mercy of the bike shops work load when I need something done.

  4. Probably a good idea. If you sign up, let me know, maybe I'll try take it with you.
