Parents do you know where your children are??


If your child is hungry, and tired and stops late on the way home to visit and you feed em this is what happens. That is my son Joshua on the right. I covered them both up. They fell asleep in Josh's old room. Pitty my dog was actually purchased by Josh with his first pay check about 8 years ago with out my permission. Pitty is still here. Josh has since moved out. I let him  them sleep, set an alarm clock so he would get up for work early and he was gone when I got up.

I flated for the first time this year, I saw the green slime starting to ooze out, and hoped it would seal, it didn't my ride was almost home, so didn't repair.

Working on my road bike, replaced front wheel and chain. Notice wear hole indicator, the rim sidewall is gone. Back on the road again. It's fun, riding pavement, zippy.

Tomorrows ride is going to be on rutted, slushy, half frozen, icy snow mobile trails. Will ride the Trek Hard Tail with the studs.

It's going to be fun. I promise ya. Yahoooo.

Ya'lll come back now,

I don't know where my children's children are, but I hope they're in bed.

Yeah - I know where my children are. Hanging all over me! That's okay - only 7 and 11 years old.

Check out some Mavic ceramic rims. Expensive up front, but worth it. The sidewalls never seem to wear.

Ian's mountain bike sports a pair that are 11 years old and have lived on three different bikes now - mountain bikes. Before the ceramic rims, I'd blow through multiple rims over the years.

Of course now disk brakes solve that problem, but for V-Brake use, worth the money.
