    Default one in a million shot

    I was riding Sunderbruch yesterday and on my climb out of LT's 2nd creek crossing I clipped a stick and it popped up and snapped of my valve stem.



    good thing I rode Blue Mounds first. or it would have really been a short ride.
    Just a bike!!? JUST A BIKE!!!??? This, here, is a highly advanced, awesome spectacle of engineering almost two hundred years in the making. It's the best exercise machine ever invented. It's a better friend than a dog. It's a better drug than Prozac. It's what I do when I'm feeling good. It's where I go when I'm feeling down. It transcends the age boundary. It brings together different ethnicities. The bike is quite possibly among the greatest achievements of man.
    Why does it cost so much? Because it's TOTALLY WORTH IT!!

    Is that sealant I see? Did it actually seal the valve??

    Ya know Russ, with the luck you've been having this year, maybe mountain biking just ain't your thing. Maybe you should take up crocheting or something?

    What you see here is the effects of gravity on a liquid.
