So, the other day I broke a spoke.

No problem. i can't get the the LBS for a couple days, so I'll ride my road bike.

Hmmm.... why haven't I ridden my road bike in a couple weeks? Probably because I'm fat and lazy. Cool! I'll ride it tomorrow!

Today, as i was leaving my office I looked at my tire.

Oh... that's why.



Well, it got me here no problem, here's to hoping that it gets me home okay.

Ten minutes later....

ps: that tire (tyre) is a brand effing new Vredestein Fortezza. I was coming down a hill, gunning it for the green. It turned yellow way too early and I hit the brakes hard. Almost went down, had to unclip and put my feet down to complete the stop. Front brake was on as hard as I could without locking it up, the rear was in panic mode and this is the result.

I sure am glad that there is now more fail in this thread than I originally brought to it.

Spelling Fail.
fyi, we only criticize on grammar on punctuation (sometimes). incorrect spelling is expected.

Hmm... At least you didn't have a phone conversation fail, followed by requiring a new wheel to ride now did you? :D

Oh and, try getting some armadillos if your LBS has em. I hear they're really good.

//You don't wear a hell-met? :eek:

//Pretty-boy! ;)

That cap is pretty Pimp-tastic, plus why would anyone be taking fashion advice from Bent?

Sorry to hear about your tire, but at least you got that bad mojo out of the way before the weekend.

BTDT. Walked the last 2 miles in the pouring rain.

BTW - Helmet PHALE! Commuter boy. We don't want you to end up headbutting a car like this guy. Or pulling a Natasha Richardson.

I wear a helmet when I RIDE my bike. Not when I WALK it. :p
