These are the heart wrenching photos of the damage I did to my Victoria spinning wheel when I tripped on her in the dark last fall. I've been putzing about getting her fixed. I did take her to my LYS, but those ladies are so busy running that I am sure it slipped their minds. I didn't buy it from them and in a lot of ways, it was pretty ballsy of me to ask them to sort it out. My bad.
I really do want the wheel repaired. I hate that is just sitting useless, so I sent out an email to my supplier at Shuttleworks and I got the answer back today. Way way less cost to repair than I thought. I am just pleased as punch! And, I remembered to ask for a couple of replacement whorls for the high speed flyer so that it can be used on both of my wheels. This is a real bonus and something I am really really looking forward to.
It still will take a couple weeks to get things sorted, but in the meantime, I can dream of a road trip in the not to far off future.
