    Not my day!

    8 miles from my ride I broke a spoke. Checked my little tool bag to see if I have my truing tool to straighten my wheel and guess what. No tool! Because the wheel is so out of true, I have to release the rear brakes but it still rubbed the chainstays.

    Oh well, I went ahead and decided to head back, rubbing tires and all. Heading down San Vicente(Santa Monica) I hit the mini marathon and the entire Ocean Ave. was shut down due to the event so the cops made me detour around and head to the side streets. Finally riding up my street and the wheel decided to collapse so I ended up walking the last block to were I lived.

    Sorry for the rant guys. Just one pisser of a day
