This is just too funny. I guess most of us have violated the leave well enough alone rule now and again, but ha! This takes the cake. Poor little systems engineer. Was it his very last bike event ever?
I think not. But I do believe he learned a lesson about leaving well enough alone. He did get it all reassembled eventually, and the event was laid out so that the full 80 mile distance was made up of several 20-ish and 30-ish loops all originating from the central starting point, so he did get 40 or 50 in and had a good time riding.

This was his very first ever bike event. The night before, he decided to completely take his rear derailleur apart in the hotel room, including removing the pulleys. In the process, he lost some parts, took him half the night to find where they ended up. So as everyone else is taking off on the ride next morning, there he is trying to reassemble a rear derailleur with his bike laid out on the grass in front of the school.
