SAVED by the ProBikes People of Pittsburgh PA
Whooopppeee. I am at a real computer in a bike shop in Pittsburgh. Jake, Brain, Soupie and CHUCK have welcomed me into their Forbes Ave. bike haven.
Old Cunninghamroadbike is in need of a good tapping job…I’d cross-threaded the rear mech when reassembling it out of the box (I know I should have let a mechanic do it, but I thought: come on, how hard is it to screw in a derailleur?).
So, from NYC to Pittxbg my chain crunkled and groused, and I prayd a lot. As you might know, I’m on the Northern team of the 42 Ride, accompanied by 20 others… tomorrow will be my first day on a healthy bike, thanks to: Soupie the great, Brain, Jake, Alan, Chuck, Anya, Johnny, Jeff, Todd and Major Tom the little “Boxton” terrier. Uh, is that enough people in one shop? Maybe not.
Maybe the other eight will be bummed I failed to meet them, BUT there is the big party at Peter’s Pub from 6-8 tonight.
Wish me luck on the next fifty stages of this ride…
Pittsburgh is the city of bikerly love… heh.
