Bike checkup day

Today both bikes got a bit of work done. The QRoo got the race wheels put back on along with a "K Guard" to prevent a dropped chain to the inside -- as I had last Saturday for the first time ever on this bike. I could probably blame poor shifting as I came too fast into a stop sign, but this small piece is good insurance for a race.

The Jamis road bike got the rear wheel trued up.

The QRoo rides inside the van, safely nestled between the front and middle seats. The Jamis rides behind the van, exposed, on the rack. I do feel a little bad about that inequity. 

Steve, owner of Just the Right Gear, and original owner of my QRoo, does great work and I just love his shop. It's simple and unassuming from the outside, but very well-stocked, organized, and full of collective wisdom. It doesn't matter what day of the week or time of day I am there, it's always a hub of activity. I just happened to snap the pictures without people in them.

Just the Right Gear was named a "Top 100 Bike Shop" by Bicycling Magazine last year and it's easy to see why.

I very much appreciate Steve's generosity and support of this race season!!

Sorry to leave you hanging out there, Jamis, I love you too!
