Weather: Sunny, hot, 80’s
Pretty busy time today, met a lot of fun people of all ages with all sorts of bikes and bike questions. Everyone is always super-enthusiastic about riding and what they’re learning when they stop by.
Emmy had emailed ahead to ask what might be needed for a flat tire on a child’s bike, and arrived with a new tube of the right size. We tried patching it, but then learned there were other holes, and moved on to install a new tube. Both kids were a lot of fun to work with. The youngest had a bike with training wheels that didn’t fit the bike. He was happy to give bike riding a shot without the training wheels. By the time this post goes up, we suspect he’s got it down!

|Erin||Low tire pressure,Gears||Pump up tire(s),Derailleur adjustment|
|Unknown||Gears||Derailleur adjustment. This was an e-bike with damaged engine, so the goal was to make the derailleur functional again (it had a bent hanger and tensioner wheel cage). Fixed that, adjusted gears, all set, though that makes for a heavy bike!|
