I always pull my tire/tube completely off as the majority of my flats are caused by those little tiny star thistle thorns. They are a bitch to get out.

Must be pretty strong, only three pumps tp get his tire up to psi with one hand, really?

Intimidation is a powerful motivator, even for an inner tube.

dayum. life goes on...

I have to say I would never ride that bike if someone put the wheel back on when it was in a stand. You gotta put the wheel back on when it's out of the stand to make sure that the axle is all of the way settled into the fork and use a lot more pressure on the QR too.

What if they had a Lance Armstrong event, and nobody came?

That's too bad you feel that way. Many on the old forum were unable or unwilling to conceive that Livestrong could in any way be a good thing, or that someone wearing a yellow bracelet or the equivalent jersey might not be worshipping Armstrong, but rather expressing support for promoting quality of life for cancer survivors.
If you can't or don't want to consider that possibility, then just consider it irony.

I always coat the inside of my tires with talc. I always put talc in one palm and drag the slightly inflated tube through it to coat the tube all around as well. Years ago I didn't do that. I sometimes found the tube stuck to the inside of the tire in places. Maybe from riding in hot weather? Whatever. I feel the talc helps.

I never use that valve thingy that screws onto the valve and is supposed to keep the valve in place.

Maybe I'm just nuts :-)

lsd and Pin0Q0, Marty (username Cr2be on the old forum) lived two years after being diagnosed with brain cancer. Livestrong was a Godsend for him. He never thought Livestrong was going to add a second to his life, but what it did in spades was encourage him to live his remaining months to the fullest and he did. He was very proud if the photo of him riding under the Livestrong finishing banner after doing 60 miles. He had hoped to do 100, but that photo shows a cancer wracked body.

So, while I choose to support other organizations and don't read the Livestrong E-mails I get regularly. I will not disparage it. Livestrong is all about hope. And hope is one of life's biggies. For that we can thank LA. (LA, like most of us, is a mix of good and bad. The challenge here is that with LA, the lights are so bright it is hard to see anything.)

And yes, this is personal for me. I visited Marty at his first two hospital stays, the second shortly after he had been diagnosed with the the brain tumor. Visited and played harmonica with him a year later. Played the blues for him at his service. My eyes tear up every time i think of that photo. Thank you, Dan of the old forum, for those calls asking me to visit Marty. If you see this, holler.

Similar story to ben's....one of my college roommates was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2012. He passed away last November, but in between, the Livestrong foundation gave him and his family a lot of support.

I have never bought into the idea that -7 started Livestrong simply as a shield against his critics. Did he use it that way at times? absolutely.....but that is different from saying that was his intention in starting it.

And regardless of your feelings towards -7, no one can deny the good that Livestrong foundation has accomplished / provided to those suffering from cancer.
