I have decided I have a specialized form of cycle dementia. My bike parts have gone missing without leave. It's getting very frustrating.
- I bought a Kestrel Talon frame and put the small plastic bag of cable guides in a build box along with a stem. I moved the stem while clearing out old boxes. I'm now in my 4th hour of searching while contacting Kestrel and multiple LBS for replacements.
- I had a new hard to find Octalink BB (unused because a build required an Italian thread version.) I bought a 48/38 Ritchey Cross crankset requiring an Octalink BB for my mostly Ritchey equipped Breakaway Cross bike. So far I've found square bottom and an ISIS I don't remember buying - but no Octalink BB
- I bought a fork crown mounted cable guide to solve some fork shudder. I decided to try mounting it again (either drilling a mount hole or rigging an angle bracket). After searching the current projects bin, my work bench, and the brake parts drawer - gone, missing! Fortunately I bought two and found the unopened one.
- My original Magicshine light head and rectangular battery pack has been missing for weeks.
It's getting bad - bleeding into other categories - tools, 1.5T hard drives, and others I've forgotten already.
