“Just wanted to say thank you very much for teaching my son how to ride a bike. I must admit, given that he's nearly 10 years old and has Asperger's Syndrome with high levels of anxiety and low frustration tolerance, my expectations were low and I wasn't confident that he would get it after only 2 sessions. But your patience and expertise prevailed and he did it! I was amazed but more importantly, he was thrilled too and so proud of himself. He said that the feeling of the wind in his face while riding was "the best". He was still talking about it at bedtime and was really excited to teach us all the tips and tricks he learned from you. He's really looking forward to having a bike of his own for the first time too. Again, thanks so much.”
Good to be back working when you have these kind of jobs.
But man.. Some people should service their forks more often so it doesn't have to come to this.
Two almost identical Fox forks and both legs looked almost the same.
Dan, the master bike mechanic at "The Broken Spoke" in Port Townsend has been wrenching for decades. As a one-time bike mechanic myself, I sometimes romanticize the days of turning the wrench, tuning the wheel, and greasing the chain.
Finally home and relaxing for a bit after a fun block of travel and racing. Big shoutout to @carson_jones_wilkins for some wrenching help before I left. He made sure my bikes were dialed in for a month of hard abuse and just finished up a stint wrenching for @the303project at @thetourofutah. Thanks for the help and wishing you the best as you keep chasing your mechanic dreams. Always love seeing Virginia guys on the big stages. Keep it up Carson!
