DAMN...!  How long of a walk did you have after that?!

Only a mile.  My neighbor sent her son over in Forester to get me.

Yeah, that's a lot worse than what happened to mine. I was able to straighten mine out enough that I could at least ride out.

Comical "upgrade" today. My wife is a creature of habit. She likes what she likes and doesn't want to devitate from what has worked for her (hmmm maybe that says something about me??). As a result, she's still riding her 2000 Gary Fisher Sugar 3. She doesn't like to change anything about it...ever! I finally convinced her that the 17 year old tires, that had fibers showing through the sidewalls, were a real danger. But she still didn't like the idea, so I tracked down a new set of the same WTB Velociraptors that have been on this bike since the beginning. It's practically a new bike!!

I swore by the Panaracer Smoke and Dart on all the bikes I owned until I switched to 27.5. I'd use them today if they made a 27.5 or 29 tubeless in modern widths. They still make them but only in 26x2.1.

Yeah sometimes if it ain't broke don't fix it.  Even though I was making fun, those velociraptors are actually really sweet tires. The front/rear specific design is hard to beat. I'm glad they are still making them.

Also, I make fun of her old bike but she does have a new Framed fat bike with a second 29er wheelset.  Between all of that she's got the bases well covered.  But damn she still loves that old Sugar!

BTW, loved the power grips on my old pedals too :) I switched to flats about 10 years ago and haven't looked back.

Power grips have to be one the best, simple designs in the history of biking.  I still have them on my around-town bike.  For MTB I've lately been using Crank Bros Double shot...flat on one side click-in on the other.  Makes for good options on those long grinds!  Strictly flats on the fat bike.  Works best in snow/ice and big winter boots.
