    Another Reason for N+1???

    My reputation for adding bikes must be getting around. When I dropped off my bike at the LBS for the new cables they immediately spotted the threads showing on my rear tire. I knew it was about time to change tires and I've been checking them before each ride. Instead of trying to sell me on new tires they immediately said "another reason to get a new bike. This one is worn out!".

    Which one of you have been spreading rumors about my addiction???

    It wasn't me - but only because I've never been to North Carolina.

    JPPE,
    Maybe you should check the bathroom walls in the shops, some sales person probably has written your name and bike of the WEEK on the stall with your cell number ans "For a good Sale call........"

    Can you blame the LBS? Wearing out tyres shows how many miles you have put on the bike and as the bike doesn't have an ashtray- they have have to have something to judge the mileage by.

    There once was a cyclist named jppe
    Who's name was know from sea to sea
    He would enter a store
    And all the sales would sore
    And every salesmen giggled with glee.

    I think it's time for an intervention.
