I will knock this last one out and then head to that bike store to drop $50 on some new brake calipers.
I am hoping they have these different parts that I need for the brake handle so I don’t have to buy a whole new one.
The guy at the shop seems to certainly want business so maybe he will help me out with this part that I am missing. I would have to buy a whole new brake handle and that would certainly cost me another twenty five bucks or so if the local business sells it to me. I bet the new contractor that works there will have the piece I need so I don’t need to go to another local contractor to buy it. Then I will have a fully functioning bike again and my bike rides will be a bit more enjoyable. I got the bike from a cooling contractor friend of mine and the thing has held up certainly well considering I ride it to the heating and a contractor far away where I work each afternoon. I like riding a bike instead of driving a car though because it is a lot more difficult to get around the city without having to deal with the traffic. My heating and ac contractor friend goes riding a lot and I want to join him for some good climate control up in the mountains with that nice breeze we get. I feel this weekend would be a good time to head up there so I need to give him a ring and see if he wants to go.
