today
 
Today im up at my school watching our school play a rivalry school in baseball when some girls i was with decide they wanted to go get something to eat. So im on my bike doing my thing riding with them when my back tires pops. Well the place they wanted to go eat is right by a bike store so im like "What ever ill go get some tires thrown on". Cost me 63.00 for two tires,a tube and to put them on. I am sort of friends with the guy who did all of it so he gave me 20% off like everything to.

You suck at everything, I took one glance at that and decided not to read it.

Throw in some punctuation and I might consider it.

Capitals count for something too, you have lots to do, you better get crackin'.

I'm going for a nap, when I get back it should be fixed.

Good man.

Cwt, you got ripped off- that's a lot of money for what was done.

wethepeople 04-21-07 10:46 PM

Ya, I thought that was kinda high.

But then in Canada if I were to ever pay retail for my tires they would be over $80 for both.

FitRider 921 04-21-07 10:46 PM

Ouch. That's a huge markup. It's about $20 a tire in the US of A.

eightdip 04-22-07 03:25 AM

It's about the same over here for once. Although KHE's, animals and fly's cost more

I think that's a bit better. Were there two back tyres?

It does seem rather a lot of money for two tyres and a tube, plus labour.

why'd you get new tires? why not just get a new tube

FitRider 921 04-22-07 08:11 AM

Haha. I was thinking that too.

East Hill 04-22-07 08:20 AM

You know, I was trying to avoid asking that question.

no the reason thhe back tire poped was because you could actually see the threading below the rubber and i rode it like that for awhile then i hit a rock and it blew it out so i had to get a new back tire and tube but the back tire was fatter then the front so i just had them stick a front tire on to. yea labor was kind of gay but i was about 4 miles from my house so i was like **** it and just them do it since i had the money

KinetikBiker 04-22-07 12:23 PM

This is irrelevant but i get new tires like every year. Or whenever i get a huge nail in there.

cwt341 04-22-07 12:38 PM

ive only had i think like 3 sets of tires in about 6 years on that bike and still have the stock rims even though the back one is bent now

wethepeople 04-22-07 03:20 PM

I've been running GLH's front and back since December, before that was a GLH back and a K-Rad front. But my back is getting pretty bald so I might just bite the bullet and buy a set of Rubens.

FitRider 921 04-22-07 04:07 PM

I always thought of two ASM's, but now I want two Rubens.

eightdip 04-23-07 10:06 AM

I also want Rubens but they cost a lot

Eh i don't get the hype behind them. I love my Odyssey Aitkens. I'll defiantly be getting them again. I think they come in that plyte stuff too now!

FitRider 921 04-23-07 12:46 PM

Rubens are going to come in a new/cool material, if they aren't already. I'm too lazy to check. I need more cap'n crunch.
