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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
