On a more serious note...do not click on the link and start reading if you are in a library, church or any other place you should be quiet. Also do not have any beverages or food anywhere near your mouth.

I thought these reviews were hilarious

Sorry, I'm out for tomorrow. I blew out my rear tire today, so no more riding until I get a new one ordered. Hopefully I'll catch up with you all on the next ride.

You didn't go down too hard, I hope.

No, both the bike and I are fine. I didn't hear it go, but all of a sudden the rear of the bike felt like I was riding on ice.

I hate that feeling. Glad that's all that happened.

I'm not really sure. I pulled the tire off when I got it home and found a hole, so I'm guessing it was probably a nail.

That makes two of us. I guess the bright side is that I was going to buy new tires in a couple of months, so I'll be pushing up my timetable now.

I don't have any more symptoms; i can breathe, coughing is down, all that. Now i'm just all tired & ragged out. I thought about going on the tarmac ride tomorrow but A i don't own heated gear and B it'd be a stupid thing to do at this point in my recovery.
