So without going into full detail, let's just say that on my final shakedown rides over the weekend, I got some stuff like rocket launching bottles, rocket launching bottle cages, and gritty grease that worked WAY too well in my seat clamp out of my system. Dave was planning to roll out of town (with my bike) at noon for an extended road trip to Kansas. It was pushing 2:00 before my very patient friend Mark of South Mountain Cycles Coffee Bar was able to help me make it all right in between pulling endless espresso shots and taking bike repair orders for a veritable flood of customers coming in and out of the doors on a picture perfect Farmer's Market Sunday in Emmaus.
