Not exactly accurate, Richard. I re-asked the second part of my original question. But at the end of the day, your right. Gratitude was deserved and I failed to deliver it.... my bad.
Rebel, thank you for taking time to help me with this bike. If anyone has an answer to the second part of my question, I'd be grateful for any input. Relatively new to this hobby, so just trying to head off any issues this might cause.
