    Well, jeez, you gotta keep your lady well fed and well lubed or she's gonna beat the daylights outta you when you try to pull the ride hard and put away wet scene on her.

    There is a subforum on this site on tires. Check it out to see how riders prevent flats. We get a lot of thorns in the road in PHX this time of year. I used slime.

    Did the frame crack as a result of the accident or did it cause the accident?

    I agree. "The White Lady" had to be broken in, like a wild horse.

    It was really trying to KILL me!:devilish:

    Its HD wheelset is like good shoes and legs. Every component needs to have been gone over and replaced with HD parts, if needed.The right combination is vital for dependability. It took me months to cure issues like chain jumping and chain breakage. :ack2:

    After each ride, wipe her down, check everything, especially the frame.:detective:
