I went to the bike shop on base today...
The same one who wont sell me spokes for a wheel, I had to bring my wheel to them and have them "fix the wheel" (all they did was screw them in... they didnt true or tension anything... I could tighten the spoke with my fingers....)
I went there for a new chain... they wont sell me a chain either, I have to bring my bike in there for them to "install it"
so i told them hell no. Last time they had my bike, it was almost 4 weeks.... and they didn't fix a damn thing.
So I'm going off base, there's this little bike shop in Landstuhl, that the owner apparently speaks decent English and deals with us Yanks on a regular basis..... Time to get some Euro... ouch this exchange rate...... 50 Euros, 75 dollars............
Problem is he has crazy hours. So I never have any idea of when he's open.
I WANT TO RIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!
