Unheathy Attachment
Seems everyone has had a set of tires that aren't happy coming off or going on a paticular rim. Tire levers come and go, and that's why I dug a pair out of my bag - the garage set seem to have gone somewhere I can't find them. As I was working the old tires off the rim, I broke a lever. Bummer.

It wasn't just any tire lever, but one of the pair I've been carrying for a while now. The levers form the top of a plastic box to hold a patch kit. If you've watched me change a tire on the trail, you've seen these. Remember that race in Kearney, at the golf course, with the rainstorm? Way back then? I got these there, and have used them since.

I've used them for 14 years. Done now. Got to get some new ones.

i have the pump i won as a door prize at the hot hot hot race in northbend where, when leaving the event, the fireworks truck skidded into the ditch on its side. i'll be sad to see it die when it dies.
