I woke up this morning and went straight to my LBS, with high hopes of getting my new gear cables installed properly. But this weekend is Toussaint and, although I don't know many French who take religion seriously, there are around 60 million of them who take religious holidays very seriously. The shop will be closed till Tuesday.

Now, if I had 'my other bike', I'd have a fix, but since it's still a frame in bubble wrap hiding behind my living room sofa, I have no choice but to take another stab at changing these suckers myself.

I'm happy to report that, although it took the whole morning to do, my front derailleur cable has been replaced. After lunch I will attack the other side.
