Wait... is that Freewheeler John Smolenyak in the picture below?
That woman above was so sweet when I filled her tires and adjusted the brakes.
About this time, a mother and son came in, of whom I didn't get a picture. They had the most beat-up old bike that wouldn't go... but it became clear that this was gonna be the kid's only chance at a bike. I had to un-bend a couple of links of the chain, shape a bend fork, play with the brake... eventually I got it so he could get it to go in one gear (of a 3x7), and I got one brake to work. Later, I rode home on the Krakow Monster, with my toolbox on the rack, and meditated on injustice and mercy for a mile or two.
Above, the replacement team, Tom & Annie. I stayed a bit longer, but I'm glad they came so I could go. With all the up-and-down and lifting, I'm going to be a mess tomorrow.
That was the COOLEST tandem cruiser! Below, I could be wrong, but I thought the woman with all the flowers gave me a wink. Don't tell TEW.
And below, the winner of the best bike outfit, by far. With matching bike.
