First Serious Mechanical Problem Took us to a Bike Shop in Tallinn

First Serious Mechanical Problem Took us to a Bike Shop in Tallinn

Leaving Tallinn Bob Poelstra's pedal came off, stripping the crank of
threads. The only solution was to replace the crank. We have extra
parts in the van but the van had headed on to mark the route with chalk
dust and to deliver the luggage to the next hotel. To call the van back
would delay everyone's progress. So we found a bike shop. We were near
a large, modern shopping center, Rocca al Mare (yes, that's Italian, not
Estonian!) that had a bike shop called Rademar Sport. Yes, they could
fix it, yes right now. They quoted us a price for parts and a separate
price for labor. An hour or more later the mechanic had the crank on
with new pedals. It wouldn't shift properly, he pointed out. Indeed,
wrong crank with the existing front derailleur. We would have fought
with that all the way to Istanbul and Bob would never have gotten into
his granny gear. "Don't want it, I said. Can't ? you find the right
crank ?" He knew exactly that he couldn't send us out with that crank
arm. So he made a couple of phone call. "It'll be here in ten
minutes," he said.

Forty minutes later we had paid (parts only - no charge for labor.
Bob's been pedaling happily since then - that's three days and about 300

(Note - Bob's bike was a Cannondale in a shop full of Treks!)
