|Van and his magic fingers|
Saturday, December 1, 2012
Back in August my trunk mount rack upper straps broke with my Stratus mounted doing 65 mph. When I pulled over I found my bike still strapped to the rack being dragged by the bottom 2 straps. The 2 arms supporting the bike acted as a skid plate. The only damage was a broken mirror and a bent derailer. I pulled out the derailer as best I could and have been riding it ever since. It was never a 100% so I decided it was time for a new derailer. Well hours into the exchange and I could not for the life of me get that thing adjusted. I brought it to my favorite LBS, Bicycle Rack, in Hightstown. My buddy Van took one look and new it was a bent hanger. With his magic fingers all is good again.
