ask bpn.....oh wait


think you just rub oil all over it and leave it for like 24 hours, then wipe it over


anyone try food grade penetrating oil?
 

i had to use it on some machines at work and it cleans, protects and prevents rust.

I'm gonna try it whenever i get my new/used frame in...

put my powerblock tires on, did a few big city sliders in a parking garage and ripped my back tire open. too tired to change my tires again, besides i need a new tube.

4 flats in half an hour

wandering around the backstreets of SF we found this area

which also had giant pools of glass

got a giant shard in the microknobbie and put in a new tube and threw a fit faf in the front
then my rear wheel started feeling lumpy and before i could even stop and look down at it, my tioga powerblock sidewall blows out. so i put in a fit faf and another tube in the rear.
rear tube patch job blows a leak.
put in another rear tube and super sketchy old patch job that has been holding for a while... stops holding
and as of right now i have a big goathead in my front tire but its still holding air :/

my bike also feels heavy as hell with those fafs, fml, my arms are dead

Decided to paint my raw 20", thinking either flat OD green (because I have a can) or a gloss or satin dark grey.

bluee, Did the glass fuck up your Microknobby beyond repair? I ran over I stick with thorns the size of pencils on it with my Microknobby. I have a nice cut in my tire, but with a cardboard boot in it, the slit is no bigger than a popsicle stick. It has been going fine for a few months now and hasn't gotten any bigger.

When I went from stupid light tires to FAFs I thought it felt a lot more solid, which I prefer massively.

I watch it get ridden by my girlfriend because she got inspired after watching the sister session jam this weekend. She has now ridden my new bike more than I have. Being hurt sucks.
