I do 90% of my own work on my bikes, but last weekend, when I was on the home stretch of putting my project bike back together, I decided I would rather go for a bike ride (nice weather) than install the brake and derailleur cables on my bike.
Most of the harder stuff was done....but I got frustrated looking at the partly done bike in the garage and wanted it done, but not at the expense of a good bike ride.
So I gathered up the cables and housing I had already bought, and took the 90% complete bike to the shop...and then went for a ride.
I was happy that I got the ride in. Still, I felt I wimped out on finishing the cables and housing on my own.
Do you do your own wrenching?
Do you wimp out and take stuff to the bike shop you could do on your own?
Do you feel guilty, or are you happy to spend your kids' inheritance on labor charges at the LBS?
