Helmets

I don't care who you are or what you think you're capable of, you should always wear your helmet, I know mine has saved my life before.

Maintenance Love

You know something that I love? To remove my old HeadShok fork from my mountain bike frame you have to use a hammer. (Yes I did research this before I did it... just a little.)

Lesson Learned

Today's lesson: Trying to do 'home brew' tubeless tires on your mountain bike is not worth the time, trouble, and labor. HOWEVER, it was a great learning experience and many of the things could (oddly enough) be applied to other things. How did I learn this lesson? Well, I read an article about tubeless tires, there are manufacturers out there with wheels and tires designed to work this way, there are also companies that sell conversion kits. And then there's the ways that people were doing it before all these products came around.
