Final Bicycle Preparation

We took our bicycles to the local bike shop (Oregon Bike and Skate) for their tune-up and final delivery preparation (boxing) before shipping next week.

Replace chains.  New taillight.  Extra spokes.  New rear derailleur.

Our mechanic is a wealth of knowledge.   He advised that the tires that I planned on using, after the mountains, on the rough roads of Texas would probably not fit on my bike.  Not enough clearance in the front; need to find an alternative solution.
