People have many inventive things that they do with old Tyvek race numbers.
Some people make a sweet members only jackets.
|Others will make wallets out of them.|
|Hipsters will make cycling caps out of them.|
But in my very small and humble opinion (Hey! Stop laughing.) you should just make them a boot.
|Not these kind...|
|But this kind.|
|Much like this, only with a larger split (Stunt tire used in photo.).|
We dubiously aired the tire up to see if it was going to blow apart. But it didn't. There really wasn't even a bulge (Huh, huh. I said bulge...) that was evident.
Now I'm not saying that you should run a tire with a boot forever. It's strictly a "Get Your Ass Home Safe" (GYAHS) sorta tool. And admittedly I've carried that thing for over a year before we needed it. But it saved our JP from having to hitch a ride home from a dubious looking guy with a van.
1. Don't ride through piles of sharp leaves.
2. Carry a tire boot with you. Or have exceptionally handsome, intelligent friends like me that do.
3. Don't take rides from strangers with a van that says "Free candy". "Free puppies" is totally fine though...
Thanks for reading.
