The one two punch of Jeff Kistler and Jim Spilllane got my Eagle wheel back on the road!! After Jim located a rim from his stock of old bike parts back there in Connecticut and then got it shipped out to us, Jeff went to the work of lacing it all up. It did not end up in complete mode on the first pass, however, because Jeff kept discovering spokes that needed to be replaced. For which we had to rely on Jim to send us even more spokes.
It was a good thing I was in Castlebar, Ireland while this whole painful process was played out because I did get the bike back until yesterday. And even then I still can not go the distance on it until the replacement bike shows up as this video shows.
