We have heard from Roloff regarding the shifter; unfortunately, it is not a stock Roloff shifter, such that we need to be contacting HP Velo. We are also concerned that Scott’s shifter might be showing signs of the same problem mine has. Before we can do any further examination, we need to get a torx wrench/screwdriver, since that is required to remove the parts.
Since the hotel we are in is expensive, we are going to hobble along to Napanee and camp tonight (possibly hotel if necessary), and then hobble along to Kingston tomorrow. Once we are in Kingston, renting a car to go home is much less painful .. plus, we will have successfully circumnavigated Lake Ontario, so there will be some closure to this trip – it would feel less like giving up.
We will try to check email during the day. We may not have Internet tonight. Our cell phone is on, so that folks can reach us if necessary.
