Dear Fromme Parking Lot Lady Who Needed Help With a Flat...

I helped you install a tube in your flat (and formerly tubeless) rear tire, in the Fromme parking lot, on Thu Aug 11 around 5:30pm.

On the off chance that you (or someone you know) sees this… I was a little worried about losing the daylight so I slapped that tire back together in a hurry. About 20min after leaving the parking lot I realized:

1) I did not check the rotational direction of the tire before installing it. There is a 50% chance it is on backwards, you should check that.

Sorry!

Nice and then the unexpected DOUBLE NICE.

There's nothing better than an Orangina after cheating death with Digger.

She's not responded because she's currently in ICU having had a crash when she lost control of her mountain bike. Hopefully the crash wasnt caused by tires being on backwards…..

:cool:

Was it a Farmer John? Cornering traction changed quite a bit if the rotational direction was wrong.

Ha. In 25+ years, this and a 2.6 Ardent share the dubious honour of being used once and thrown away out of pure disgust :D

I knew a guy in elementary school who dropped his pants to his ankles to pee at a urinal.

Good guy, but made different choices than me.

They already had it completely off by the time we got there. Donno the story of how it got flat.

The sport already doesn't have enough women, and they were out there getting after it, props to them. So no condescending is needed.
They had all the bits [HTML_REMOVED] tools needed to fix it, they just needed a bit of help in the order of installation on their first try, be nice.

go easy on him, three sheets has recently been through a life altering event.

he found out he's only half as smart as he looks, and well, if you knew what he looks like you'd realize that's not a very good thing.

context is everything

I threw away a Nevegal like that once.

I've given them lingering angry looks and muttered threats of violence under my breath before, but never actually followed through and removed one.

Kudos.

Kinda' a roundabout way to get a womans phone #.
