Today as much as I tried to gear the bike up and replace the cables. I really could not figure it out. So I had to get my LBS to help me out with it.
Other than that problem everything else on the bike is fixed and pretty much 90% completed.
It will be ready tomorrow at 4PM.
Didn't really trust myself that much to re-cable the breaks and gears. I have to ride back from work tomorrow, so need it done asap. I'll post some pictures up tomorrow.
P.s. I didn't give up, I still want to learn how to re-cable the brakes and gears. This is the only set back holding me from riding home from work tomorrow ;)
