I was just out riding and realized i somehow put 2 huuge dents in my chain and seat stays. im so bummed, especially because the back end definitely isn't straight anymore.

and I just sold my old fbm frame 2 weeks ago....for 20 bucks.

you have my sympathies, man.

also bought a spoke for it and just pulled it out of the rain where its been sitting for an hour

I stripped my LX cranks in prep for polishing for my new Pompetamine.

I had a couple local kids roll up while I was blasting Tom Petty in the garage and need some help. I ended up setting up a 12 year old with a new Monolever, Snafu dual upper, GTX, dual lowers, Evo II's, Eclat pads, a Ti Profile Imperial, 2 Aitken red walls, Eclat bb and some twisted PC's. The kid is a big kid but rides all the time and gets heckled alot by the older guys/skaters at the park so I wanted to give him a confidence boost. I felt good about getting him going...and then his mom gave me couple bucks. That kid could not stop giggling about how excited he was. It was a good day.

Well it wasn't today but I set up a Beacon frame, put a new hub guard on, and replaced a broken spoke. Will post pictures as soon as I can take some good ones. Just waiting on my KMC knight chain from Kurt and my Zodiac guards for my wtp hub and I will be set for a while

Rigged up 2 of my baloon patches on my rear tube. I now have 4 of these in the back in 2 in the front.

^^^ those hold? they dont inflate where the hole is?


fixed a broke spoke on each wheel when i noticed a third spoke that was already cracked halfway through and had to buy another one.
I hate lacing up glands

also put on a new rimstrips on both wheels to replace all the ducttape/old tube rimstrips ive had forever (heavy as shit when i took it off and weighed it)
and when i reinstall my rear tire (same tube) it went flat after an hour of driving...
put in a new tube pumped it up, rode it about 10 ft and then PSSSSHSHHHHHHHHH!!!! a hole on the rimstrip side of the  rear tube, wth???
replace that tube, go on this 15 mile group ride and at the furthest point while im just pedaling along, my  front tube explodes, what the fuck

also got tirelevers and 2 patchkits from a pinata, that was dope






*just checked my tires, rear is flat
