A few more miles enjoying the river and then we arrived at the bike shop, where Roger was like a kid at Christmas unwrapping the new wheels.

Is it possible to have "buyer's remorse" on anything related to more cool new bike stuff? I don't know. But Roger was wondering if we really needed the wheels after our ride yesterday proceeded without incident. For that, we have to thank a couple of the engineers in our family; on Sunday, both Colin and Jason were out with Roger in the garage, offering expert opinions and some dang good advice about how to deal with the bent axle. Only problem - their advice about how best to position the axle to minimize the chain issue was diametrically opposed! I won't say how it ended up, but I will report that the ride in from Waco was not burdened by the problem. So, have we bought new wheels for nothing?

We ended up with one of our shortest days on the bike yet - 11.6 miles - but it was "on the route" and we'll complete the journey to Azle on the bike tomorrow with Becky's husband Jim and perhaps a few of his buddies.
The day's report: Fort Worth to Azle, riding 11.6 miles/7701 to date.
