Praline's new handlebar grips came today and my guy at the local bike shop took off my old ones, put holes in the new ones, and put them on my bike for me.
My guy also happened to be wearing a brimmed hat today. We are so simpatico. He put air in my tires while I put my streamers in the grips.
I always try to buy something after he gives me a bunch of free services so I bought a bell. I had my eye on this one anyway because I think it brings symmetry to the handlebar area--it's about the same size as the Shimano gear shift on the right side.
