Fiesta Island

The Kuota tri bike is taken apart and packed in the bike box. It is much easier to take apart than the Trek 9.9 Speed Concept. I still don't know what to do about that frame. TSA has my claim and it is currently under review. They have 6 months to make a decision. Why do I have a feeling they are not going to pay it??? I have checked around about repair. Carbon Frame Repair here in San Diego said it can not be repaired. Three other bike shops stated it can not be repaired and they all contacted Trek to confirm. I now have the info and picture submitted to Ruckus in Madison, WI about a repair. I have heard they can do repairs that other places can't. I should hear back from them early next week. If the frame can be repaired, then I will have it fixed. I hope it can be fixed. This is the best (cheapest) option. If it can't be repaired, then I need to decide if I will get another Trek frame, or if I will go with another frame. I am starting to check other other bikes.

Going to see Abbie (AbbieR) this evening for dinner. She is in SoCal at her brother's house watching the kids this weekend. We are going to meet in Oceanside at the Harbor.
