There's a tire with 0 PSI!

Cold as all crap outside. A dusting of snow. Time to suit up for a sweet fat bike ride.

After two hours of tearing Frick and its companion slags a new one, I went from 4 PSI to 0 PSI! I’m at the farthest possible distance out from my house. Deep in the slags. No tube or pump. I put  10 ounces of Stans in each tube to keep this shit from happening.

Oh well. I got to reminisce about floating through the moto track around the radio towers and shredding the Irish Trail. Sissy little ruts just melted under my 4 inches of goodness. Lots of playing around on the steeps. So much to think about on my 2-mile walk home through Swissvale.

I patched the tube at home and added more Stans. I guess I gotta carry a tube and pump with me. Luckily the tires slide right off my Rolling Darryls. Way easier than the Large Marges. I think it’s because the Darryls have a lower profile. All’s well that ends well I suppose. Kinda weird my first flat on this bike in more than a year. My last flat was right in front of my house tooling around and I ran over a big-ass screw.
