    Crash than Change

    So two things I've done a lot of lately, crash and get flat tires. So I weighed the two and and decided that I would rather crash than change a tire. A flat ruins your ride, while a little blood makes you feel like your trying.
    I was told there would be Cake

    THIS.

    Crashing either means you're trying really hard or you suck really bad. In both cases riding more will alleviate the problem. And you can't ride if you're walking a flat tired bike back to the parking lot

    I'll take a flat tire.
    my crashes typically end in broken something, and time off the bike.

    When it comes to biking, one should not have to "try hard." Biking is a Zen-like experience. You must be one with the bike.

    Now go Grasshopper. Go and cut wind.
    Nobody gives a s#$t you singlespeed.
