Yesterday, I drove to Elizabethtown, KY to order a tombstone for Jim. Whenever we went near that town, we’d drive past the place we had our Bike Fridays worked on. The mechanic was a BF dealer and was the best, but the last time we saw him, he was closing up shop and moving to Pittsburgh. Each time it looked like the bike shop had moved out, but nobody had moved in.
I arrived about 45 minutes before my appointment at the monument place, so went to see what was going on in the old bike shop building. There were people working on the building, but they certainly weren’t decking out a bike shop. It still said Bull Moose Bicycle Shop in big letters on the top of the front, but I thought someone hadn’t painted over it yet.
I spoke to a man going to his truck, but all I got out of my mouth was, “I see it says Bull Moose Bicycle Shop…” He said there was still a bike shop in the back of the building and he thought Adam was there. He wasn’t and I was disappointed, but told the man I’d stop by after my appointment before returning to Louisville..
Well, he wasn’t there the second time either, so I asked the man if I could leave him a note. Later on, after I was home, Adam called. I was soooo excited to hear that he was back in town and open for business when he wasn’t on his other job.
In addition to at least 50 other topics…as he said, we were catching up, we talked about seeing if we could make some changes and get Jim’s BF to fit me and if so, converting it to an E-bike eventually. He said he’s done many conversions. I’m not sure it can be adjusted enough, so will seek that information first. I’m hanging tight with just Violette until at least September or October. I won’t be making any changes to the old gal either way though. Having Adam back was the best news I’ve had in a long time!
