Well..... I almost rode today. Drove my mom to the post office and was going to ride from there. I have a mini van (yeah yeah no laughing.. lol). And I usually take my front wheel off and put the bike behind the front seats. So I got my bike shoes on, gloves on, and the water bottles on the bike, wallet under seat... all that good stuff. Get the front wheel out and notice a big gash, the rubber is peeled back and there is even a nick in the kevlar underneath ( I guess its kevlar i dunno).. But I do know that the tire already has a slight bulge to it. Soooo NO ride. ... Will try again tomorrow.
