Annoying, Expensive Weekend...

Actually, Saturday was mostly okay. I took the bike down to the shop to have the new derailleur swapped in. Wonder of wonders there was no line of customers out the door this time around. Bikeshop!guy did the switch in about ten minutes while I chatted with Mrs. Bikeshop!guy as she assembled a mountain bike. He took the still-almost-new old derailleur in trade for the new one, and didn't charge me for labor either, so I bought a backup tire tube and a new pair of bike gloves (on clearance for $5!) so I could pay him for something. <foreshadowing>I should've bit the bullet and bought a bike computer, too, but I didn't.</foreshadowing>
