Torn Tire

If you have been following this blog may have seen that it has gotten way more exciting lately (which doesn't mean much, as this is typically a very dry blog, more to serve as a place for me to document what I wear with what climate conditions). I had been feeling a thumping feeling as the rear tire rotated, and I got the flat while getting ready to go to bed. And that following morning, I came downstairs to find my bike laying on its side, with a flat rear tire again. So I knew something was up. And I put in my extra tube, and rode to work. And when I got on my bike to ride home, (finally during sun-lit hours) I was able to see that my tire is tearing open at the location that I had gotten the flat the previous night. So Julia did me the favor of picking me up as I was riding to my local bike shop, Suwanee Creek Bicycles. The bike shop had some selection of slicks that I could pick from, but as this is my primary means of transportation, I am getting picky, which they were happy to help me with. So it turns out that the pair that I like had to be ordered, and to keep me from being without a rideable bike, they lent me a brand new tire to use until the pair I ordered gets in (talk about good service!) I love this bike shop, its a great sensation feeling that they personally know me (as they always know me by name as I walk in, or when I call asking questions), and really take care of me.
