We watched Toy Story 3 tonight and loved it. Now David & Kate's essay in the last Bento makes even more sense!

I took my bike over to the local bike shop to get the derailleur adjusted. He quoted me $15 over the phone, then $10 when he saw it ("It's clean," he said -- I guess because I haven't ridden it enough!). He said it would be done Thursday, then I got a call an hour later to pick it up today. When I did, the fellow who had worked on it asked if I like the handlebars the way they were. "They're kind of sad," he commented. He then spent 15 minutes adjusting them, including banging on a stuck part to free it, which I would never have had the guts to do. They're wonderful now!

They still only wanted to charge me $10, but I insisted they take $20. "Well, okay, for our pizza fund," they finally acquiesced. I don't think I'll ever buy anything at the shop since it's almost entirely geared to high-end racing bikes. But I'll gladly take my lowly Costco bike in for repairs again.
