Taunt the Karma Gods!

Ok, it's time to taunt the karma Gods. I'll start. On my new bike, I have not had a flat, nor have I ever broken a spoke. Haha, come and get me!

Oh, alright. I've only had six flats this year, including two last weekend. That means I'm on course to finish the year with fewer flats than last year's total of 28.

Never broken a chain. Not once.

Nor has there ever been a terminal rip in my tires.

Only had two flats in the last 2 years. And one was a slow flat I didn't even realize was there until the next day, the tire stayed inflated all the way home on the ride.

P.S. Dear karma, i'm going on tour for 2 months on may 1st. Save it until then for maximum effect.
