Coming to the end of my first week as owner of Gear and I feel like I'm living in a Heaven on Earth. I have Erik's approval on how I've been running and my plans for the shop. Which means the world to me. Hanging out in the shop, helping people with their biking needs and hearing their tales is such a great life. Getting to order in new bikes and bike parts gives me a materialistic thrill. While repairing old k-mart specials gives me a special kind of satisfaction. I'm looking forward to years of being here.
