The Diego going in for surgery

I dropped The Diego off today so the fine folks at Adams Avenue Cycles could do what they do best. I'm gone next week on business anyway, so it was good timing.

When I return, the good Lord willing, The Diego's handlebars will be about level with the saddle, the shifters will be barcons, and a red bottle cage will be installed.

You can send cards, flowers, and candy to The Diego via me, through PM. I'm hoping the whole procedure is painless.

Forget the candy- just send cash to make it as painless as possible.

And what are you doing to be worthy to ride The Diego upon your return?

IMHO, the Diego doesn't exist until there are photos....just a figment of your imagination.

Here's The Diego, before any modifications. Posted before but perhaps you missed it!

I sure hope you have them do something to adjust the head of that bike.
