Popped a tube
Ran out of tubes for the commuter so put in an old 26" tube.
Pumped it up and popped the tube.
Ears where still ringing 15 min later.
Don't work on the bike when you should be sleeping.
Or post, wrong thread should be the fwit.
Sound emitting device
Here in WA the law states you must have a sound emitting device attached to the bike.
Now I can yell loud enough that a stupid driver that almost ran me over can hear me.
And as my slow fall with the bike because I couldn't unclip the other day can attest, I am firmly...
Hmm, stupid n+1 rule. Will be interested in what the OP does.
I was looking at a 2015 giant xtr advanced 29er 1 this morning full XT with giant carbon wheel set marked down to $2.4k

That and when they say it is going to rain it does for a week non stop.

I usually just end up running the red.
Even better there is one set of lights that I know so well that I just turn on the red arrow.
I got a rear mudguard for the bag as I found it was getting wet from road spray. They never cover the bottom to stop water, the top is fine it runs off.
Other than that I ride to get wet and have a change ready for the end of the ride, be it on the trails or on the commute. Showers...
Hmm, you have me thinking that an ebike may be perfect for my dad. I will have to have a talk to him about it. Living in a remote property a dual suspension ebike may be the answer for him to get around and give the dogs a run while he no longer can. But then he does just like going for a walk...
There is only limited things you can do with a rental.
