No, I stopped riding my bike like 15 years ago because it makes my knees hurt.

Do what I do ... keep the bike in the garage. I haven't broken anything on my bike since I stopped riding it


Umm no.

My bike is a Schwinn Mountain Bike. Never had any issues with it and I've had it for about 15 years. Though I don't ride as much as ZB does.

Cost me about $275. 15 years ago, that was a high price for a bike.

Speaking of Breaking Things -

I picked up a new Road Bike ( I am into Biking - but I suspect not as much as ZB - but I do have a mini fleet, a Walmart special 21 Speed for around the block, a Raleigh Mountain Bike for well er Mountain Biking and trail riding and pulling the kiddo kart and now a Raleigh Roadie for I hope a ride around Lake Winnebago by the end of the summer ) You can never have too many bikes

Any way I was 3 miles from home in the Roadie and hit a pothole and blew out my rear tire....rim and tire is good but I suspect I just blew the tube ( 140 psi doesnt leave much wiggle room for big impacts like that ) So I ended up walking home.

Lesson Learned and a mini pump, 2 spare tubs and a pouch will be delivered from Amazon on Saturday Smile

The realtor is going to contact my wife sometime today with the response to our offer. She is at a legal seminar dealing with human resource issues created by the Affordable Care Act. Do you think its mean I keep calling her making her dive for her phone??

Yeah you gotta watch out for those potholes they can really bite. Having that much pressure should make some rocks fly if you run over them just right. I've bounced a few of cars before. Twisted Evil We can get you in shape to ride around Winnebago really fast if you'd like.

Oh and yeah one can NEVER have to many bikes and yes I ride like a crazy man. Wonder if Wheel and Sprocket would freak if I showed up to the Wednesday night group ride on my mountain bike.

I haven't found them yet, so I can't comment on the quality of the hides.


The two of these that I've found are cammo-taped glass jars which you don't see around here much.
Also I didn't see any mention of permission, but I don't know if it's needed here.
