Drove out to the "bike store" on Ramstein and got some presta->shrader pump adapters (5.00 bucks for 2 of em... wtf)
And a pedros 3 way spoke wrench, 15 bucks... high way robbery!!!!!
anyway, got it all good, and I'm finally on the bike, took er out for a quick road ride to test, Everything works like a dream.
I finally realized, that for around here, I need to go back to a 2 or 3 x 8 (maybe 9) set up, because I was spinning too fast around 20 mph, wearing myself out =(
but man, it felt great to be back out.
Beautiful day in Germany as well, clear blue skies, upper 70's and sunny!!
