this week

This week at Mighty Mobile is seeing a surge of bikes that have had their first rides of the summer with the rider realizing that the bike really isn't ready for a full season of "gettin' after it". As is typical for this time of year, I've been doing quite a few brake bleeds as well as shifter cable & housing replacements to keep things working the way they were intended to.

I've also been dealing with all kinds of shipping snafu's. First we have the bearing & pivot kit that I've ordered over a week ago. Customer still waiting. Fortunately, his bike is still rideable, it's just that you can hear his bike creaking and squeaking from waaayyy down the trail. I won't name names here, I'll just say that the area where the said bike company resides is within' a days drive from me and near the beach. The surfing must be going off right now. Siiiiicck.

Then, there's the rim that I needed (still need actually). It's a silver Mavic. It needs to be a silver Mavic. The job entails repairing some crash damage and I'm trying to match the front rim as best as possible (A.B.A.P.) and a silver rim would really tie things together. I ordered the rim last week and it arrived yesterday. The box looked a little battered. Upon opening said box I found......

..... this! This won't do. The old/crashed rim has its issues, but it's not THIS bad. WTF!!! I wonder if the guys at UPS remember this add from a while back while their handling packages?

So, I guess I should peel myself from the computer and get back to work.

Hope this finds everyone well.... if anyone is still out there.
