mobile office
As usual I was working from the road. Sometimes I found a hotel, but I often set up office in city parks.

replacing chainring in La Grange
Before beginning my trip I had replaced my chain and rear derailleur. The mechanic was also supposed to replace one of my chainrings. It didn't happen, and I forgot to check before taking my bicycle home. Consequently the chain would skip every time I applied too much torque. I've noticed that on several occassions I will spend a great deal of time talking over maintenance with somebody at a bicycle shop only to find out later that the actual mechanic was given the bike and a slip of paper and a hope and a prayer. I was pleased that this shop was able to replace the gear on the spot.
