Shit mechanics deal with part 2

Generally speaking people seek way to entertain themselves
while at work.

Mechanics are no different really,
we just seemingly have a non stop parade of opportunity.

Like this gem provided to us by Cannondale.
WTF was being passed around in the board room that day?
Yeah, the bike is old but not old enough to escape the DUH factor
of using EPO as a marketing splash on a bike.

Everybody wants a stiff road bike.
Well, lets make a carbon road frame so strong...
you can get hit by a car and the frame won't budge.

Scott wins, Shimano fails.
That there is a Ultegra crank bent from contact with a moving car.
Frame says fuck you I ain't moving.
WOW is all I could think. Carbon that didn't snap. Go figure.

Days go by, you plod through the usual bike ailments. 
Then a little gem pops in and you either 

Hope you get the bike in your stand


Hope your timing is just right so you screw your co worker.

I chose the latter on this puppy.
Not because it is a POS ( every body loves their bike right?)

But as an old man I didn't think I could lift it.

Ever have someone ask you for the valve nuts?

Ever wonder why?

now you know.

Just ease back and let the awesome soak in.
Judy if you care.

not soaked in yet?

So how much wrong is going on here?

I for one am certain this guy never ever participates in Drunkcyclist.

How could you?
one stumble and you are well on your way to bleeding out or the ER due to the parting of the Red Sea that used to be your lower leg.

O-ring clamps can cut a bitch.

Now I for one don't mind wrenching.

If you look back a few I used to be pretty damn sour. 
Then I learned that I should not just take a job anywhere, but choose where I want to spin wrenches.
So I did.
I am pretty happy at work.
Unless you are a dick.

No body likes a dick.

I do however dislike certain things that a wrench must deal with.

This is near the top of the list.
On this day Itwasthewholedamnlist



Seriously this is like a big Fuck YOU
to the guy playing catcher in this game.

there is probably a part three coming.
