My bike was giving me fits! The gears were slow to change and the skipping was driving me insane. I finally got to the shop this morning and Brandon the bike tech got me set up! He changed out all the bad and now? Night and day. I had an exceptionally smooth ride tonight after work and got in nearly 40 miles. I arrived at the beach and saw a guy playing with a water jet pack. I went over the bridge to get onto Wrightsville and he was eye level with me. I know I waved back with a slack jaw. I had no idea that was possible and now I have to do it!! Sunset was amazing and the temperature was just perfect. I love to ride my bike!
