An MBc success story



Today I was minding the parts counter at the NAPA store here. The phone rang. It was Gary, a guy who rides a Happy Time around here. His chain had stretched, and he shortened it. Too much (destructive disassembly). Though I had only seen a HT up close once, I've read enough here that I knew exactly what his situation was. I had him go to the LBS and get a short chunk of BMX chain and bring it to the shop. I found a chain breaker in the small tool room and added a link to his chain. I also told him about some of the ideas I've read about chain tensioners. He asked what he owed me. I said "No charge, but some day we might be doing this sort of thing professionally".
You all deserve thanks for getting his bike back on the road.:cool:
