Yesteday, I went to the mall. There was a huge Iowa thunderstorm banging around outside. I didn't buy sunglasses, but I did get bike riding stuff in preparation for RAGBRAI, including a CO2 inflator thing, padded pants, and an intertube for the lovely Motobecane that I'm borrowing. When I got home, it took me about an hour and a half to change the rear tire, and as it turned out the best tool for doing that is a butter knife. So much for those tire hot pink levers that I bought.
