    tire question

    theres an elevated area in my tire, when i spin it, i notice the tire isn't "level" all the way through. its not worn, i don't think, and the rim isn't bent, what could it be? i let the air out, and refilled it, and its still there, is it worn out? could it have been from hitting a pothole?

    It's been awhile!

    Stop smoking, get on your bike, and eat right. Start slow, once you get going, it'll all be downhill from there. Keep on the forum and let us know how your doing.

    so i tried energy gel

    I've even heard marmalaid sandwhiches are good, loaded with sugar i can see why. I think i like the idea of fig newtons, the taste isn't bad, their quick, not sticky, and have enough calories to help out. I wonder, sounds stupid, but if i could learn how to make my own fruit bars or gronola bars...

    so i tried energy gel

    i bought some of that energy gel, tried it out on a ride. It helped a little, but nothing great. It wasn't really a long or tuff ride, so i can't really judge it. Has anyone else had any experience with it? How'd it work?
