After finding out that is was unlikely that my new bicycle would work, I was bummed. Corey Diaz, one of my former students at Don Lugo High School in Chino was working on my bike at Free-Wheeling, the local bike shop, where I had dropped off my bike the day before. At around 2 PM, I received a call from Corey.
“You know that problem that I told you about the bike not being able to shift gears and how I didn’t think I would be able to fix it?”
“I fixed it.”
Horay!!!! I thought. I now had a brand new bicycle that was going to work, and not only that, but it was going to work well. I was stoked. Corey then told me that he was going to tune-up my bike and that it would be ready to go within a couple of days. I pateintly waited and picked up my newer bicycle when he called a couple of days later. And boy, did it ride smooth.
Thanks to Chris Carlson and Corey Diaz, I now had a newer bicycle with everything I could ask for. I’m a lucky guy.
