Looks like this is the start of my bike troubles, not the end... Howes replaced the front forks and the front mech, but what I thought would be a simple brake-trimming operation has turned nasty - the rear brake cable has evidently become damaged and can't be adjusted, so it needs replacing - I have spare gear cable but not brake - so I need to go shopping before I can fix it - which I can't do at this time on a Sunday. I can't use the parts of my vandalised bike as the scum cut *all* the cables on it. Basically I'm screwed without a bike, so it's time to get *both* bikes back to full working order to avoid this problem again. Which will cost money, the shopping list looking a bit like:|
And about a half-day to fix it all, preferably a moderately dry, bright one.
And that's probably a few days work for an unskilled labourer like myself. Urgh.
