A Loaf Of Bread

Posted similar to this nature in the Utility Forum but will elucidate here.

The damn Trek rack from my Comfort bike didn't really fit right on the 4300, or should I say it did but the holes in the end of the 4300 frame aren't tapped so I need washers and nuts, I fastened the rack to at the front which was tapped but zip tied the rear ones which required the nuts. (read Fred)

I couldn't help it! I wanted to go and get something at the store so bad I didn't care. So after zip tieing the danm rack to the back and clipping on the Trek Interchange w/panniers I went to the bakery before it closed and got a loaf of bread.

I felt like an idiot, but no one else would've ever noticed. I'll go and get the nuts and washers Monday...gotta work this week. to buy more toys
