I went on a great three day ride last week to Nagano with Pete (Yamabushi). After only around 50km, I managed to snap a front spoke. This would have kinda ruined the rest of the two and three quarter days left of riding had it not been for Pete's quick thinking and fellow TCC member, Chuck's (ProRaceMechanic) kindness. Pete called Chuck and organised the loan of a new front wheel for the remaining days. This meant I would be able to ride Norikura and more importantly for me, descend with peace of mind. Just wanted to say a big thanks to Pete and a huge thanks to Chuck for keeping me rolling. Without you guys (and the TCC) I would have probably just turned around and gone home.
