We’re happy campers today! A quick call to the bike store this morning lifted a huge weight off our shoulders – the bike has only minor damage, and the frame is good!!
The handlebars were bent and the mirror was trashed. The bottom bracket was also damaged. That’s it! YIPPEE!!
The bad news is that they don’t have the right width of handlebars in stock, so we’ll have to have them shipped in – but we can live with that. We’ve ordered what we need and it’ll be here in a few days. Then another few days to get the bike put back together and get things organized – and we’ll be back on the road!
We’ve now moved in with a homeschooling family here in Albuquerque with twin 8-year-old boys Forest and Sky, and my boys are in heaven! We’re up in the mountains above the city, so they have a huge playground with trees and rocks and a big treehouse. They’ve also got an enormous bucket of Legos – so the boys are good to go!
