    It's 3am, 29 degrees, you're 3 miles from home and drunk when...

    ...you hit a bump and your handlebars turn sideways! "No problem!", you think to yourself, "I have a handy dandy multi-tool!" The only problem is you seem to have lost it or left it at home. "I'll just walk" you think, until you realize it's really ****ing cold and you just want to get home to your warm bed. What do you do?



    No hands all the way home b!tches!

    No, you put the front wheel between your knees and straighten it out.

    No, like it was all loose and the handlebars didn't turn the wheel anymore! I had to hold the fork crown to get going.

    Yeah, me either. I swapped the stem out yesterday and must not have tightened it down very well. I should know better than to ride a new setup without tools.

    Thats why I always tighten my handlebars at 3pm 68 degrees in my house while I'm sober.

    Glad you got home.

    I usally have wiped out trying epic skids when that happens. Forcing it back with the knee works. Too many hills for no handed. I have a cresant wrench in ny back pocket at all times now
    this bike is a pipecleaner

    If you can't figure it out, don't encounter the police. Drunk on a bike, the ride they take you on; will not be towards home.

    You ride home anyway, thinking you may not be that drunk; within a block, you clip a side-view mirror with your elbow; wipe out; notice flashing lights behind you; get up, ride away quickly; wipe out again, this time ****ing up a car; realize the lights are an ambulance and not cops; get into ambulance with bike, apologize profusely for being an idiot; get fixed up; go home.

    Oh wait, that was me.

    as you know this was entirely self-inflicted

    part of me thinks you should have suffered a little more

    for your own good and all

    -10 for not riding a wheelie home while spinning your bars.

    Another option is to jog/walk/jog/walk to keep your heat up.
