Mission San Jose...
Mission San José is a Spanish mission located in the present-day city of Fremont, California. It was founded on June 11, 1797, by the Franciscan order and was the fourteenth Spanish mission established in California. The mission is the namesake of the Mission San José district of Fremont, which was an independent town subsumed into the city when it was incorporated in 1957.

@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. :D 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.

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!

Both my old bikes still have flat tires so I rode this one this morning. 30 degrees out. But gotta keep pushing.

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.

@Mr. Monkeyarms I appreciate your first hand experience. I've used Slime in my MTB tubes before too and wasn't a big fan. Maybe it's different now but it struggled with big punctures and getting into the valve. I ordered some of these last night:

I'll see if they fit and work. I'm not so worried about adding a few ounces to my 10 lb wheels.:p

Yep, Slime is garbage. There isn't a sealant that works on large holes that I'm aware of. Being an ex- mountain bike racer, I am aware of where my tires make contact with the ground at all times, no matter what bike I'm on. Same tubes in my road bike for over 5 years(when I rode a lot)and only had to patch one hole that wouldn't seal. That's pretty good in my book.;)

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 didn't work this morning, so I mowed the yard, then took the 1929 Westfield out for a ride.

I thought I took a bunch of photos, but when I went to upload, there was only one, from when I got home.

The sunlight this morning was making the berkshire blue really pop.

I removed the drop stand, I am going to put it on the 1918 Pierce Motorbike instead, put a Pletsher center stand on it, I really like how these work, they also save space for parking bikes closer together in the garage.
