Had the same nervous feeling when I got the main pivot bearing replaced on my bike.  It was at the LBS for the whole week.  Talk about nervous!

Taking mine in today as a matter of fact/coincidence!  It does feel like something is terribly missing when this happens.  Get well soon!

Everytime you go to the garage and look where it would sit, and it's not there. :'(

I hate to leave my bike. It is easier for me to leave my dogs, at the kennel than to leave my bike!  :(


Luckily my LBS almost always takes care of me on the spot. Sometimes I have to hang around, but usually I don't have to leave it. :)

No doubt we do. ;D  At least we haven't crossed the line and had sex with our bikes.  Well, um, ahh, maybe not. :-X

Is this the first time you have realized this? Would you rather we talk about shaving our selves? ;D Or perhaps "double track schitzophrenia" ;D ;D ;D

You can have "double track shaving schitzophrenia".  Example:  Which leg is smoother?  Left one or right one?  I can't decide!!! ;D
