Dropped the bike.. replace brake lever?

I think Im gonna cry. I dropped my bike. Not bad at all.. just bent the brake lever a little. I ordered the $10 part already, but not sure where to get it installed at... I have heard of Sams before.. Memorial area.. is that my best bet? Or is it easy enough for me to replace?

And I know I will get asked this.. No.. I'm not hurt. No the bike isnt hurt. Just my pride. I will know better next time* I was stopping on a hill and the right side went down into a really big ditch, and the right side sloped down to a lot lower than what my foot could reach. ( I already have to tip toe to reach the ground as is.) By the time my right foot reached the ground, the bike was lop sided and I couldnt hold it up. It cranked up and drives fine but now the brake lever is bent. I just want to get it back to normal.
Any suggestions?

Hey Ami, don't let stuff like that keep you feeling down. That kind of stuff happens to everyone.

I'm curious... Has Ami been out to Poser Point 1 yet to go on any of the little rides we do?

Re: Dropped the bike.. replace brake lever?

Awww yall are so sweet...* Hai told me that it was a matter of a screw on the bottom of the lever. If that's the case.. I should be able to manage. I live by myself, but I'm sure I have a screwdriver around here somewhere. haha Who needs a man, see? JK And the turn signal is now loose.. I went and checked after someone wrote about "at least there wasnt more damage" haha. But the mirror is definitely fine.
I guess Ill wait for the part to come in and try my luck. If I'm too much of a girl to figure it out, I will definitely PM someone and take you up on the offers* Thanks for all your help.. Hope to see you soon out riding sometime.* right:
