Things I Love About Mexico

Our first order of business was bike maintenance. I don’t know how well you can see it in the picture, but Alan’s chain is eating his tire and wheel.

He doesn’t look too happy about it.

My bike has a broken mirror, bent rack and wobbly exhaust (that last thing has been an issue since purchase and I’ve just been ignoring it, but if we’re going to ride out into the Mexican desert I should probably make sure all my bike can remain intact).

The nice thing about Mexico is that if someone can’t help you, they know someone who can. We get directed from one shop to the next, but on the third we hit the jackpot and they set to work repairing the Zeb.

Rewelded the mirror so it still had full adjustability.

Heated and bent back the rack.

Created a custom bracket and welded it to my frame to bolt the exhaust on securely.

Grand total for these services? 10 bucks. Total time? Maybe 15 minutes.

I love this country.
