Angry Workshop requested in Valparaiso or Viña del Mar

My bike broke down once again! I am tempted to set fire to it but must try to remain calm!!!!
We managed to wheel it few streets to a hostal. Now we need to find someone competent who could look at the b*tch and tell me what the hell is going on??!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Need someone in Valparaiso or Viña del Mar. IF not I will have somehow to drag it to Santiago to Jose Meyer and Rafael. But ain´t easy!

Please let me know asap!!!!!

Thanks

Thanks Bert! We found a nice workshop in Viña del Mar. I must dig their card and put details in the HUBB!

We found the problem in the end, appaling job from CTork in Bariloche and they fitted a faulty VR! Thugs!

I bought a new one in the end and Alistair fitted it. The bike is now doing ok! Just few more weeks before being back in good old england!

It is true that lately every time I arrive in a town I seem to be hunting for the closest workshop!

Anyway, I hope the next 2 weeks left of my trip will be ok and the Beemer won´t give me more grief!
