Feet above sea level in Fruita, co, for the most part the rest of the year i will below 6,000′, alas, less stress on my used body.
Last evening i happened to notice oil on top of my shock: not good. Next stop is Fruita. OTE enjoys my repair confidence. I called ahead from the road to book stand time. James thanked me for my bike service. He noticed that the shock was twisted off vertical which was wrong. Solution as he diagnosed the problem was to disassemble suspension parts. He discovered a bonded fitting had brouen free. I called Turner and spoke with David. Always a great conversation. Long story i am sending the frame back to him for expert repair. OTE is reducing my bicycle to a collection of parts. I am sending the frame parts back to SCAL for repair. I will be Turnerless till mid next week. Will find life experiences hete in grand valley till wheels ate under me again.
