Fuck my bike

  • 3 March 2011

Late May: rear tire goes flat. Hole in tube is found and patched, foreign object is found and removed from tire, boot installed in tire.

November: rear tire goes flat. Another hole in tube is found and patched, another foreign object is found and removed from tire, another boot installed in tire.

Two weeks ago: rear tire goes flat. Tube and tire are removed, shitcanned, and replaced with self-sealing tube and Kevlar tire.

Today: A tire goes flat. Guess which one. Go on, guess.

If you guessed “the Kevlar fucking tire with the self-sealing fucking tube I just fucking put on this fucking bicycle,” go get yourself a cookie.

And of course I noticed this well after Aunt Boss, who drives a truck that could have gotten me and the bike home easily, had left. I ended up walking the two miles home, pushing the fucking bike. I put a little air in it when I got home, and there is a big enough hole that I could hear and feel air shooting out of it. I do not have the energy to deal with attempting to fix it tonight so I guess I’ll just be riding the racing bike tomorrow.

    Have you considered a tube replacement that’s not inflatable? Several years ago I found some that were made of a high density foam rubber that gave a ride that was almost identical to regular air tubes. I can’t find the company (they may not exist anymore) but I did find airfree tires that offers a pretty similar looking product.
