FLAT TIRE!

Just a few days after telling the guys in the shop I’ve never gotten a flat tire with my Panaracers, I get a flat tire. CLEARLY this is vengeance for me not buying the bike I test rode. I’m not saying they sent their dog and Director of Marketing Jack over to bite my tire, but I’m not NOT saying it, either.

This is what I imagine it looked like right before my poor tire was punctured!

Anyway, I was on an extremely tight schedule, and the fact that changing the rear wheel tire is always much longer than the front coupled with my general inanity with tools meant I had no real chance of fixing it and still getting to ride in, so instead I opted to head in to the cube farm and try and get ahead of the day so tonight I can fix my flat and throw on a new cassette that is my ‘no new bike’ consolation prize.
