Puncture #5 happened on the way home from an 18 mile ride on smooth pavement trails with 100 psi. Luckily I was already on my street.

Guys at the bike shop helped me find a pretty gnarly glass puncture hole on those shitty tires this $250 bike came with. Invested in some gatorskins today.

They've updated it a bit with some new pictures.

Yeah, loving these gatorskins.

Hard to believe I fell off my bike, sustained some heavy face bruising and chipped most of my front teeth off less than two months ago. I ride to and from work every day now and regular hit the trails when I have a day off. When me and the lady want to go for a dinner or grocery store in the neighborhood, we ride together. When I'm at home, I look longingly at my bike. Cycling for me has become an addiction that may actually not be healthy. I went from novice rider to hating being in a car in a very short time.

:wave:

Jesus, how did I miss this thread getting bumped. Probably in one of my "guh, sports!" periods where I didn't even open the subforum.

BikeSnob also has some books if you're so inclined: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/3 ... ikeSnobNYC
