For real! I was able to dissassamble some Dugast tires, patch the latex tube and then reassable them, and they are still holding air! I am a master crafts man. And it only took me about 2 hours. Now I could probably bust them out in like 15 min. Anyways, 2 weeks untill the big race. Then off to Belgium and the real racing as they say. I feel sorry for those guys who dont live in California right now. Nothing but sunshine and balmy temperatures for some sweet as training for nats. I dont care what they say, you can only do so much "conditioning" for cold weather before it really just sucks out and you cant train like you want to. I know how to ride in the snow. Bring on the sunshine! Word.
