Friday the 13th

It's been a horrible year for flats. I seem to get one every time I put on a new tire.

These are significant flat tires not just random punctures.

In the past 30 days, I ripped a tire on a curb (the curb was hidden under freshly mowed grass), tore the sidewall in some unknown way (on a new prorace3 tire), and just yesterday punctured a new Vittoria tubular over a small shard of glass riding out to a race in Rockleigh.

There was an explosive boom at the parking lot for Jiminy peak. That was when I discovered that Vittoria Corsa CX tires and Bontrager Race X Light wheels aren't compatible. They don't seem to share the same circumference.

Here's hoping that Friday the 13th changes everything.
