Bending back a tire bead?

bend it back with pliers?

Thanks!!! Good idea, I found some pliers with an abnormally wide bite, I think that's how you would put it, to keep the damage to the minimum. Seems to have worked great.

Bending back a tire bead?

I was replacing my tube and when i was putting the tire back on, it seems like I might have bent the bead?

When I pump it up theres a little stretch of tire that doesn't want to sit in the rim nicely. Is there anything I can do?

Tim Hortons pisses me off

A regular Large is like… $3.25 though, dont buy the crappy flavored ones… Slushies do rock though, just as long as you use the shake and bake technique to get the most amount of slushie and get all the air out.

Please explain Master Yoda.

I never really knew Zack that well, but a lot of my friends are a mess right now. The last couple days have been soo depressing around town. His mom is a really well respected dance teacher in the community and is taking it quite hard.

boat trailer? you got one

You'd be surprised that a lot of models now come with the option for a tow bar. They're used in competitions where you're hitting jumps and rails, they suck for making a wake, but still extremely useful.

Pedals/Cranks

Is there a way to tell if I fucked up anything from the outside? Would I be able to feel anything when I pedal? I am too scared to take the pedals off and see what damage I might have done.

I just want to know, even though I probably cross threaded, would there still be a possibility that when I put the pedals on the right way everything would be fine.

Like I said before everything is flush and not moving around so I hope all is well.

Pedals/Cranks

Ok! So I talked to the guy who I ordered the bike from, he said the only way I'd be able to get the right pedal into the left crank is if I forced it. Again, I only went in a couple of threads. He also said he rode the bike before he sent it out and everything was perfect. If the pedal does not wiggle and looks flush, than everything should be fine right?

someone help! i suck at not getting worked up over stupid things

Pedals/Cranks

I got a new bike.

While I was building it up I accidentally started to put the right pedal on the left crank arm, after a few threads I saw my mistake and fixed it. So I finish off everything and go for a quick pedal along the street; something feels bent. I don't think its the cranks since they're brand new too. Could I have fucked up the threads with my little mistake? I am thinking that I am just being paranoid because you'd think that the threads would be exactly the same on each pedal.
