a few more last minute adjustments to the bikes before we take off in (deep breath) nine days. eliot and i took apart his bike to mock-pack it up. we didn't get his handlebars adjusted quite right so we took them back to the shop to let them adjust everything. what's that i smell? could it be ... another shameless plug for the good folks at Ride Away Bikes? it is! GIVE THEM YOUR MONEY!! we learned about handlebars and stuff.
a couple days later i dropped off my bike to have them try and adjust the aero bars for me. i was having trouble getting them to stick. I thought they'd have to put a straight bar on but they got them working just fine without somehow. they also did a full adjustment and tune-up at no charge. did i already tell you to give them your money? well, here it is again: ride away bikes. huebner oaks. those guys are champs.
