My mom had that before she passed away in 2009.
BTW how many miles/KM did you have on bike?

Riding in the beautiful country you describe, I'd be in third and maybe even second most of the time going uphill, using the high end of the gear range.
You may have been doing that anyway, so I'm not being critical. Just bringing up a cautionary note for Uralistas climbing up hills.
Very worthy cause! I agree with Gobium - talk to Jason at IMZ in Redmond. If that doesn't work, talk real sweetly to Gobium himself.

WEGUNTER wrote:Olga, sorry for your troubles. Pulling a crank is not that hard. Reassembly of course is a different matter. Think you can save a dime by pulling the engine and pulling the crank. Buy the new crank and then take the engine casing to a machinist shops and see if they can rest the new crank. As Van has pointed out..................it is not rocket science.
