If it wasn't for the frame cracking, I would have tried to fix the front end fo the bike with our available funds. We were planning on working in Portugal for a year, anyway, so the additional cost to fix the bike wouldn't have ended the trip.
I quit my job when I left Canada, but my boss said that I always had a job to go back to. I'm hoping to be able to go back to work. This will be better for our financial situation and it will also allow us to have more time to think about things and make a better decision.
I think we're going to try to ship the salvageable parts home and, depending on what is practical, and either try to rebuild a bike or just sell off the parts on eBay.
