    1. First, it was like sticking a limp dick inside a virgin.
    2. Second, the part of the tire with the bunched up tube thumped along like a club foot. Thump thump thump thump all the way home.

    Ha, I've had a similar thing happen when I last resort fixed a tube by cutting it at the hole and tied it in a knot, held air and 'thumped' at the knot. Skinny road tube on commuter bike, would be hard to do with something bigger.

    It has "graphene" so it must be a bargain at any price.

    Way back in the day my kid got a flat on a bike with 16" wheels, i forget the particulars but I pulled the tube out and stuffed the tire with grass & sod

    If you don't want to click: rods that attach to your fork lowers and go up like 4-5 feet to stop spider webs hitting you in the face

    I'm not gonna get those, but I get it. Starting in late July, Spiny Orb Weavers cover the trails with webs. I've had some bad days where I've hit over a dozen of them and have the little fuckers hanging of me and the bike. Thankfully, the runners are typically out earlier than I am doing some clearing with their faces.
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.
