Cycling Log: Flat is a four-letter word

I. Hate. Flats.

Especially when I have two of them on the same ride.

Lesson learned: If you think your tire is getting worn out, it is.

Thanks to a nice gentleman with a pickup, I didn't have to walk too far from Nevada back to Ames (carbon-soled shoes are great--when pedaling). And I need to apologize to Tom at Bike World for messing up his lovely truing job on my rear wheel (nothing fatal, just annoying). The way I look at it is, it's his wheel. He built it, I just paid him to be able to use it.

I think the Trek is getting jealous about being tossed aside for another bike. Hey, it's a harem, not a marriage.

Spin easy, friends.
