Last Item of Business

To pick up some extra hours and tidy up the work load, I stayed late to knock out a quick spoke replacement.

The customer had come in for air and had trouble with his presta valves. I noticed the broken spoke. He left the bike.

When I removed the cassette I saw he'd tossed the chain into the spokes and chewed out all the ones on the outside of that hub flange. I methodically replaced all those and put his tire back on. The presta valve chose that moment to finish rotting out of the tube the way they do.

Got any other jobs that will only take a second?
