Adrian Stingaciu Needs Bike Repairs

Racer update about:

Hi this is Adrian Stingaciu calling in from Coulter Bay Village in Grand Teton National Park, Sunday, June 22nd 8:02 p.m. I discovered the problem with my bike. I don't think it is the bottom bracket that is grinding. I actually lost a couple of bolts from my granny gear. So now my granny gear is wobbling. Everything else is lined up pretty good. Middle gear and top gear are working smoothly. But I can't use the granny gear. So I've got 2 big climbs to get up to my next food drop. Which is the other issue I have. I pretty much out of food so I went to two grocery stores in town and healthiest thing I could get was bananas. So I bought like10 lbs of bananas. I ate 7 bananas in 10 minutes. Bubt bananas is not going to be enough to get me to Pinedale, WY where is my next food drop. I’m going get off the raw food thing for a while just to survive out here. Going to hit a bike shop in the morning to get a couple of bolts and look the bike over. Have to detour south about 20 miles to Moose, WY, but should be back in the race by tomorrow afternoon. That is all from here. Bye.

Sorry to hear that you're having mechanical problems, but it also sounds like you'll be back in the race in no time.
