Thanks Mike's Bike Truck.

Kudos to Mike and his Bike Truck. I was about 15 minutes into my ride this morning and my rear derailleur cable snapped. I gave Mikes' Bike Truck a call, we met up on the road, he changed my cable and a cracked derailleur pulley, as we had a pleasant chat and then I finished my ride and had a nice swim in my pool. With Mike around, mechanical bike problems won't get me down. Thanks...
