It's funny, ya know?
But in the interest of attempting a shot at bicycle wisdom I will offer up one sage bit of advice. No, it's not something as pedestrian as "always wear a helmet" or elementary as "remember...ride with the flow of traffic" or even as controversial as "when cut off by oblivious auto driver always write down plate number. Then call and get drivers home address and clandestinely key his paint and stuff potatoes in his tailpipe" not that I would ever condone such actions, oh Nay Nay!
No folks, my little bit of sage like advice stems from a repair I got in today. Seems this rider was having difficulty with their rear wheel. Seems the bike lost almost completely its mobility ability. As if the chain were stuck. I assured them we could rectify the situation and once at ease and comfortable with our mechanical prowess the customer left it to our tender machinations.
Upon removing the chain guard and taking a closer look the cause for their trouble was painfully obvious and lead me to the conclusion that I must share this one all important, nigh on imperative tidbit of cathartic revelations.....!!!
DON'T RIDE A BIKE WITH ILL-FITTING HAIR EXTENSIONS!!!!
Shout out to the young man his mom and his girl for boppin' by today and picking out the rad Haro BMX! Returning customers from when we first opened up the new place, she remembered Angi and their shared "Twilight" confab. And no worries to his Mum, yes mam big boys ride BMX'ers too!
Also, to one of our regulars, we thank him for another CHOICE consignment piece! This one is...are you ready for this? An Ultra rare Rex Criterium Road Bike!!! OH YEA! GORGEOUS chrome lug work, lightweight frame and sweet Suntour components! MAN! You do NOT see these rides every day! Check out the equivalent on E-Bay. Selling for between $400-750!! Granted I gotta tweak this one a tad, but its minor stuff. He did a full repaint on it and looks REAL good except for a minor flub on the top tube (have no idea why he touched it up by hand and not spray) But check out the pics below! Also giving you pics of the Diamondback hybrid I did up the other day. Hey, don't blast me! I know that's a slow output but once again banging out repairs to keep up.
And REMEMBER!! Tomorrow is 4X4 Friday! Get in early to get first picks!
Have a great night!
