Matt, today I went to Sealy Cycle Service and met two folks you know, Malcolm and Darren. Darren told me about the continuation of the ural repair there a couple of years ago --- I never had a clue . . .
Anyway, I sent both of them the links to this thread and to the blog so maybe you'll be hearing from them soon.
No hablo . . .
