Philadelphia smirk

Bike Repair.

Today Free Ride's Mobile Bike Repair Project set up shop outside The Co-op. I decided to bring Mathilde with me to work to see if I could find someone who knew something about 3-speed internal hubs and maybe fix that weird thing that happens when I'm in second gear.

No luck.

They did kind of break my front axle, but then Scott took it back to Free Ride and fixed it. I felt like kind of a jerk for having donated $20 and then having them strip the threads on my axle, but it's not like donating money to Free Ride is a bad thing.

So the consensus is that I need to give Gerry Kraynick a call. In the meantime, I took some pictures of the kids working on the bikes.
