I’m sick to my stomach. I’m only half the man I was just a few days ago. Nothing seems what it used to be. I’m cranky, disoriented and frustrated.
My bike is wrecked and needs a complete overhaul. If only my bike shop had been open today, this post wouldn’t haven been necessary.
— Update: I’m back in business! My neighborhood bicycle repair shop (husband and wife) did a splendid job and as a bonus, they fixed my rear seat, for free! They just know how to make an Amsterdamized man happy. The shop now has me as a prospect customer for a new bike, specifically the one old-fashioned but new cargo bike that was parked outside. A week ago I was set to buy it online, but nothing beats good service and supporting your local shop.
Honestly, they had me a day before, when she said: “I’ll send you a text message when it’s ready.” —
