Working too hard
I’ve been working too hard this last week or so (most evenings and a little at the weekend too). Nasty little data conversion tasks are an ongoing theme - to much human controlled data means lots of special cases and a never ending stream of little problems. Ho hum.
Some good news about bike parts
However, I am happy to report that DerailleurHanger.com came through on their online offer and identified the correct part for my bike from my photos. The internet is a wonderful place - it allows companies to exist that are incredibly specialised by extending their catchment area to a global market.
So my experiences so far are good. I’ve found two online shops I’m very happy with, but I am afraid I hope that I don’t need to be a customer again any time soon. Chain rivets and derailleur hanger ordered and my bike is preped and ready to have that new rear deraileur fitted when they arrive.
