Thanks for the reply! Thanks for the info. I am sorta new to CABE. Lots to absorb. My bike is a (rough) prewar 3 speed. I am going to see it through! Stay away from thorns!@1motime You bet! Get your New World rolling and take some pics. Here’s some other threads to look for New World inspiration. Tell Us About Your New World and Gramp’s Bike.
Another exploration ride tonight. Headed down the trax off roading for a while and flatted both my tires with goat heads. Spent a few minutes under a street lamp in a safer park area putting the two new tubes I had into the tires. I knew it was going to be a little sketchy so I wasn’t surprised. Going to get some thorn tape I think...
16 miles in the dark, putting together a new route was a little nuts but fun. Second half of the ride was old hat.
At Espee Park in Chandler there is a dedicated bike park for BMX, Freestyle, & Grind. Got to see some fellas pull off a few tricks. Cool place.

Both my old bikes still have flat tires so I rode this one this morning. 30 degrees out. But gotta keep pushing.
Yeah I know... I gotta get some from my lbs. Duct tape lining only works so well. 14 dollars would probably save me money and lots of headaches.I have 2 words for you gentlemen. Tru Goo!
Been using it for years as Goatheads and wind are my nemesis. Doesn't help with wind, however. An ounce and a half, maybe 2 in skinny tubes. 2-2.5 ounces in balloon tires keeps me riding. If you ride off paved surfaces you will find goatheads....
Plus it's made locally.
