Aaaaaaack! No fixie for a week!look271

During my ride on Sunday I noticed that my rear wheel was out-of-true. No biggie; just take it to the shop today and pick it up tomorrow. WRONG! My lbs is also a ski shop and the entire 'friggen store staff is going to Vermont to demo next year's skis. Can't do until Monday. Oh well, guess I'll break out the trainer/commuter and take her for some rides.......(no, I don't have a trueing stand and NO, I can't do it myself-I have zero patience when it comes to trueing a wheel!)

Ride over to my house, it will only take about 5 minutes to true your wheel and you will be good to go.

I'll leave the light on for you!

Ok, your address so I can map it out! (Let's see, Hbg to DC, 100+ miles; at this point in the year, it should take no more than 7 hrs =) )
