    BAH!

    i got it on the rim and inflated, now my brakes are out of wack!!! the whole assembly was tilted to the left, and when i hit the brakes, the brake arms rubbed against my tire tread !!!!!!!!1 FARK!

    im going to take pics, but this really sucks, and the normal tinking around and adjusting tension isnt working.
