    Hopefully it is true what they say about not forgetting how to ride a bike, lol. The owner of the LBS said he has seen a few people challenge that theory.
    Congrats and nice find. Good luck on the ride. Also sounds like you have a pretty good LBS there.

    I quit riding in 1984, bought a car, what else is new, got on a bike again in 2004, was like I had ridden the day before... If you have not been on a bike is a while, the technology has changed, I think most of the problems people have are unfamiliarity with the new types of shifters and brakes. Other people who have trouble, are probably people who have forgotten that they were never really good at it.....

    Good analogy. An LBS is easy enough to think of as a toy store. Works for me.

    Sounds like a cool and honest wrench. He had a chance to hang you for a few bucks and didn't. Good score on an LBS.

    Now that's just down right funny.
