This might sound ridiculous, but I have worked so hard on this bike in shit conditions for weeks and to come home to this was upsetting. I must have had 15 cars come into the parking lot and not single one asked if I needed help. I suppose its an ignorant thought on my behalf that someone would help me and I am doing this trip alone so there will be plenty of time for me to wish I had a helping hand but this bike is getting a beating without me doing any miles.
This was a test - congratulations, you passed!
Seriously though, take it all back apart when you've regained some patience and ambition and all will be fine.
