Got my bike back from the shop!

Well, got a good portion of the bike back. I developed an unusual problem with one of the rear dropouts and Volagi replaced the frame. New frame has internal cable routing and 135mm dropout spacing. I believe the new frame is a bit stiffer. Otherwise, looks identical to my old ride (one of the first generation bikes) . Still the same quirky triple/campy shifters/SRAM RD/Tubeless Tires as always, but that's the way an old folk needs to roll.

I've got a 100K this Sunday (was supposed to be a Century) and haven't ridden much for 3 weeks. Will require a bit of HTFU I believe.

Good luck on the ride. I'm sure it ill be a challenge without much riding leading up to it.
