There are times when cycling is simply not much fun. I seldom ride along Perimeter Center West, during rush hour, even though there is a dedicated cycle lane on Perimeter Center West, for the most part.
By the way, all this took place on Thursday last week, when I had to go to REI Perimeter, to get a new shifter for the SA hub installed; on Brahma. Long story short, I accidentally lost a small spring that's inside the SA IGH shifter, while trying to rectify a small issue with the shifter. The spring fell out, accidentally, and I could never find it, when it fell on the street. No worries though, because my trusted Brompton dealer, Foldabikes, sent me a replacement shifter, in record time. I called him on a Saturday and I had the new shifter delivered to me on Monday. Talk about excellent customer service!
PS. The figure above looks sorta like a step-function. Had to mention this to satisfy the inner-nerd in me and y'all :)
