Maybe it's the Moon?
Things have been a little wacky.
At the shop, customers have been extra chatty. Bikes are awesome, I get that. I'm psyched for your love and enthusiasm of them. I just don't think the guy behind you in line is as excited about you telling me about how much more prepared you are for a flat than your buddy is/was.
Unfortunately there was a little ugliness too.
What a guy thought was going to be a $25 repair had turned into a $1k repair. To top it all off he came to pick it up before it was even test rode (mis-communication on our part after he had called 3 times in less than 2 hours).
Did you know Dura Ace 7900 front shifters are not compatible with 7700 front derailleurs?
Neither did we.
(up to 1.1K)
He's not happy. He's falling down a hole made by progress and who knew the rope to get out of it was so expensive or long in coming.
I just hope it's not too long...
