Got some glorious new tires for the race bike this weekend - Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa's.

Stoked out of my mind to install them, I go to take off the front rim of my bike, and BOOM. I need a huge 24mm hex tool to remove it. Largest in my collection is 19mm. Here's how the rest of the day went;

$4 for a rod coupler. I win at mechanics.

Harassing Wildlife

We get bored in the mountains

Recently acquired a '92 Ford Ranger to be used as a bike hauler for the summer. Working on old crap is frustrating, because everything is either broken, ghetto, or corroded into some unrecognisable form. 

It's getting bad when you need a tool to use your tool.

Got these vicegrips on so damn tight I had to use pliers to release them. It was a semi-success. The vicegrips didn't slip, which is good. But the bolt I was holding was rusted so bad it just broke anyways. Typical.

Good times grinding broken bolts, too. Sparks are cool.

Now that the bolt fit nicely into the vice, I used the impact to bust the nut off. (Giggity) It's faint in the picture, but the friction from a tight nut made the bolt hot enough to smoke the PB Blaster off. 

I'm probably going to post about this truck a lot. It's a piece of crap, but I love it so much.

Since my last post...

I went to Quebec and built a lewd snowman.

That about sums up my winter.

What have you done with your life?
