I noticed you are from Wilmington, NC - Do they still have the "tin man " triathlon there . I did that in my previous younger life and really enjoyed it.

Yes they still have it here (was cancelled last year). I never entered - not much of a swimmer. But it's pretty cool. They also have the Red Bull fat bike race on Wrightsville beach.

Yep, small world. Our house and barn were built by relatives of the family that built the house and barn that were turned into the Lucy school.

Lay the bike on its side. Remove air and take one side of tire off rim. Go around the rim and remove tube. Pump tube up to find then patch leak. Go around the rim reinstalling tube and tire. Fill with air. All done not taking wheel off bike. Front tire, just take the wheel off and fix flat.

Motorcyclists run into this a lot. FWIW, in all my years of riding, 55+, I've only had one front tire flat. All the others were rears. The consensus seems to be that the front tire kicks up the object and positions it for the rear to run over. Sounds as reasonable as anything else. [emoticon]


Same here

Had ONE flat on front tire...driving down country road when a rabbit 'T' boned the front tire and one of his bones punctured it
Heck of a time keeping that motorcycle upright with rabbit stuck to front tire
Sudden side impact plus the wobble, wobble, wobble ...woo-hoo!

Is it time for your medication or mine?

I don't want to go bump, bump, bump down the road
