Issue 01: Dum Dums Repair

Just riding along and a fender bolt falls off.

A week or so ago, he figured, a kid finished a Dum Dums lollipop, maybe a Chupa Chups, and dropped the gooey stick that holds the pop on a sidewalk. Then Michael Pusateri is just riding along, hears something rattling terribly, and stops to check.

A fender bolt had fallen off his bike. Improvising with some MacGyver skills, the lollipop stick slid through the strut eyelet and into the fender mount.

The Dum Dums repair held together for the 15 mile ride back home.
