The next Trev drove me to Adelaide. First we went to the best tyre store in Adelaide to hear what the experts think about my front wheel. Their opinion: not to bad I could go on. So they did nothing with the wheel but I bought a oil filter for my bike and a new rain pants for me
Next we tried to get a new RokStrap because one of mien got damaged crossing the Nullarbor as well. But we had no success.
But I have been successful buying a new Dromedary water bag and collecting a parcel from Germany.
From Adelaide we went to Trevs mate Pete (PBee). He and his big nylon coated hammer wanted to try a special treatment on my front rim. Not only was Pete able to get a perfect job done with the dent he also did an absolutely precise balancing job. It took in fact long to balance the wheel than removing the dent :)
Of course I had to leave one of my stickers in Petes shed.
After Pete had finished the wheel we had a beer around the "barrel of knowledge“.
