New Bike Repair Man in training

One of the hobbies I used to have here in Haven was fixing the bikes. By far the best mind relaxer, unwinding hobby I've stumbled across. When we got here several weeks ago, one of the first things folks asked me was if I was going to repair bikes again so after some thought I decided it would be great activity for Drew and myself. Even if it meant spending more time teaching Drew then actually fixing bikes. This pic is of Drew's very first bike repair job; he replaced the entire front rim, tube and tire. He put another used tire on the rear wheel, he properly inflated the tires, he lubed the drivetrain and then took it for a test ride. Oh, what accomplishment glee he had. Priceless.
Yes, I managed to fix a few bikes myself in those few days we went there. Our bike shop schedule is 5-6:30pm weekdays. We haven't had time to clean up the bike shop or organize things; first we need to catch up on all the repairs. Drew has already selected his next project... I can't wait.

  1. I'm sure Drew truly enjoys this "one on one" time with Dad, too!
