$300 later and fingers crossed, I think we have a fixed bike. Bodged anyway with a bit of welding. The rear wheel drive gearbox had stripped a spline, ideally requiring a new assembly, but that was too expensive with a long wait to get the part. After a short debate, it was agreed that they would take the rear wheel out, take the shaft assembly out and disassemble the gearbox and weld a sleeve onto the spline. They tested it and it seems good - but time will tell. So we leave North Bend tomorrow bound for the big Redwoods. I quite enjoyed the pampering of hot showers, use of hairdryers, coffee machines, internet etc etc., not to mention a bit of shopping (more glasses!), but have missed being out there on the bikes, the best bit of it all.
