minor setbacks.

i came out of my astronomy class yesterday, and i realized i had a flat on my rear tire. it wasn't fun. i went to the bike cart, some scam from the school, to use their pump. it was a bullsh*tty pump. so i got air in the thing, but i only made it a few yards out until it went flat again. i thought: maybe i did'nt pump it enough, or correctly. so i literally carried my bike to cyclesport 3 blocks away used their pump. and it holds. by the time i made it to 3rd and nord, about 3/4 of a mile out, it went out. so i had to carry my bike home about 3-4 blocks. not fun at all.

today i went to cyclespot and swapped a tube. so i have an se lager with a kends tire in the front, a conti sport in the back, specialized "italian" clips, soma leather straps, fsa vero cranks, and a sugino track cog. my bike is really confused.

i realized, phil wood components are from san jose. and paul components are from chico. thats basically the story of my life. HA. i miss san jose.

this is the shortyfatz 8 series. and it looks pretty radical. in my honest opinion it looks a bit cartoonish and the shape is questionable. i wonder how it would hold. the rear triangle is smaller and is placed low, reminiscent of full on track bikes. i believe that this is the first attempt of a non-lowrider bike from shorty fatz. their lowrider bikes are sweeeeeet. they have similar shape. im sure this bike will attract helllllla attention.
