Once again time for my slime:
Ahhh! I'm late, I'm late for a legal motion deadline worth $$$ and
as I cycle down the un-built mid-point bridge at 35mph at
I stop. Hmmm: there's an aluminum circle on the front TT.
I think: OH expletive deleted expletive deleted.
I tug at the circle. Tug Tug!
I goggle at it. Duh?
Tug Tug Tug. No movement. Ok
I get out the visegrips and yank at it.
Itsa expletive deleted ring shanked roofing nail complete with disc
under the nail head.
And the sucker stabbed thru one side and punctured
a. the TT
c. Slime tube's outside surface
d. Slime tube's inside surface
e. Gone out of the tube
f. And put a nick in the rim.
Expletive Deleted! 12 feet of federally mandated bridge apron and i run
right over the killer roofing nail.
Nice scenery. I rode on: ya know just to see what.
And the Slime Tube did not deflate.
For two weeks!!
Now that's unusual but the moral is normal every day cycle use
benefits from a good Kevlar belted tire, a liner, and a slime tube of
quality: 75% less time expletive deleted around with flats in
