I've been riding off road for a little over two years.  Have never had a flat before while on the trails.

Well, had two today at Boyette.  Both times thorns piercing my front tire.

Want to say thanks to Matt for the help.  If he'd not been riding with us, me and Nancy would probably still be out of the trails, giggling over the pump.

I mean, I think I can change a tire.  Pretty sure I can.  But it'd take me a half an hour or more and he had it done in minutes.

Thanks,
 
I'll add that to my wish list....
 
Right after new shoes for the kids....
 
Really...there are some wonderful things I'd like to add to my mountain bike and if we had something called a disposable income, I'd say, "sign me up!"
 
I saw a dude with some sweet purple rims the other day and I got rim envy.
 
Someone with a cool spoke set up.  In blue.  I was green with envy...(no, not really...just admired them.)
 
I think I'd like a bashring (though lord knows why it's not like I go over any big logs...it's just to keep the cogs from eating into my skin.)
 
I don't know if any of you are scuba divers, but on every dive boat I've been on there's always someone we call 'Joe Diver.'  He's always tricked out with the latest and best equipment, but has no idea what he's doing.  He'll run into the reef, his dangling octopus and guages will bump into and damage coral, he'll kick up sand, etc etc.
 
If I had all the bells and whistles on my bike, I'd be the equivalent of Joe Diver.  On a mountain bike.  A Fred.  Freddie?
 
My time and money are better spent on improving my meager skills and trying to overcome all my trail fears.
 
However, if I win the lottery, watch out.  I'll have a tricked out ride.  And tubeless tires.

You are very funny. I have ridden with guys that are the King of Bling. I am the anti-bling. Nothing on my bike matches.....I am proud of that. They scoff at me but I know, once its dirty no one will know. My wheels are not straight, my shorts dont match my shoes, my camelback is faded and I use 1990 era bar ends with hockey stick tape that flaps in the wind.

Oh yeah...my kids need shoes too....but i will make sure they match.

In real life I am, too, (anti-bling) so me being drawn to fancy bike parts is a bit of a surprise.

I'm one who wants to (but doesn't) ask everyone who's wearing a T-shirt that says 'Gap' or 'Tommy' or 'Aeropostle' or 'Abercrombie'...."How much are they paying you to wear that...oh...they're not...gee..you mean, you're being a walking advertisement and you're not getting paid...oh, you mean, you paid them for the privledge of being a walking advertisement??? Hmmm...sweeeet"

Makes me wonder what other latent tendencies will emerge as I get older, um, I mean ripen.    :)
