Dropped my bike off at the LBS yesterday for some work, mainly some upgrades to fix some long-standing RD issues I've been having.
Mentioned to the mechanic (an extremely nice guy who was advising me on some changes) that I had tried to fix a chain rub problem on the FD last weekend and probably didn't do a very good job. Asked him to take a look at it in addition to the other work he was doing.
When I picked the bike up today, he was out. But when I looked at the bill, I noticed that he wrote a note on it, all caps, underlined, *not* to touch the FD again without talking to him.
Uh oh. I think I'm in trouble. This will probably be one of these situations where the shop wishes they had posted a sign that says: "$50 to fix it; $100 if you watch; $200 if we have to fix your screw-ups."
I am now wondering, on a scale of 1 to 10, how hopeless I am.
