Now, I’m a tool savvy girl. I am proud to say I have the best power tools in the house and know how to use them. I have a comprehensive collection of allen wrenchs. I can build or repair damn near anything… I can even wield a hammer properly.
All this self-praise aside, I am intimidated over taking my bike apart! It’s silly, I know. I am fully capable, and have the correct implements for the mechanical dismemberment… but I guess the thought of taking it apart, packing it carefully with padding in a box and shipping it spooks me a little.
I’ve found a slew of articles on the web, ranging from ridiculously lengthy to so brief it’s scary, and I’ve printed them all (smell that toner burn!)… likely won’t need a one of them, but I’ve printed them all in the hopes that a long night of cycle origami does not lie ahead.
I must stop at the local bike shop to see what they have for bicycle boxes… and if they’ll give this eyelash batter one for free. 😉
Update: Score! Free box and fork spacer! Whoo hoo!
