so friday i listened to it while riding in. actually i had been listening to it all day everyday this week…. i really like it. i think that i kind of killed the whole new music effect because when i was riding with my ear buds it just didn’t sound very dynamic, the horn just didn’t have the same feel to it. the beat does have a higher tempo that some of my riding music… and after two songs i was pretty tired. it was still a nice day, and the weather was pretty chilled… about 35-40 degrees. next time i get new music, i think i’m not going to listen to it till ride day.
oh i almost forgot. the ride home didn’t go so well. i ended up getting a flat. i think it was a slow leak at first but then i hit some railroad tracks and i could feel the rim taking the blow. shortly after that the tire went flat. i thought that i had a pinch flat, and it’s very hard to change the back wheel [which is where the flat was] especially at night. i called my son to come out and pick me up.
while i was waiting for him i tried to fix the flat. it turned out that the stupid “slime” brand liner wore through the tube and created a hole. this is the second time this has happened to me. i’m not sure what the problem is, either a baggy tube, or a liner that is too wide. still it’s pretty lame that the liner caused the flat…twice! i’m going to have to figure this out… my other bike does not have this problem, it also a different brand liner. i wouldn’t recommend the green slim brand teflon liner.
