Learning the proper stroke order of kanji really helps memorizing .. not to mention it makes the calligraphy itself come out nicer!

I care my friend .. and we're glad you're ok !! user posted image

People ask me how they can help and I tell them the same three things !

- go donate blood
- donate a dollar to Kyoto Animation
- spread the word

Love, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, and just being there for someone in need ~ it all helps

Only light can dispel darkness, only water can quench fire, only love and forgiveness ~ can disarm hate

I care my friend please be safe

FML... i rode my bike to work and planned to ride it back. it didnt go as planned, the bike wasnt stolen but i had a rear flat tire by the end of the day when i went to it ride back. i parked it in the bike rack and did my 10hr work shift. i dont know if anyone messed around with the rear valve stem or not but the tire was flat nonetheless when i got back. walked the bike back 4.5KM to home. havent had a chance to check why it went flat but it was old and rather worn down. last time i inflated the tire was a week ago, took them to 53PSI (60PSI max).

tried to align my valve stem by hand as it was crooked but no luck, maybe when i tried to ride the bike back not knowing it was flat it got misaligned. i will try to inflate i and see if it does correct itself but its likely a tubular tire, the rubber is all in one piece ie the "inner tube" and the outer tread part are seamless and it seems to be glued to the rim... old bike tires probably came that way in the mid 2003-2005.

i got new tires ready but those have an inner tube and outer thread casing. if the original bike tire is indeed a tubular tire that is glue to the rim. how much of a hassle would it be to remove the front tire without damaging the original front tire so it can be swapped to the rear tire? the original plan was to put the front tire on the rear and put the new inner tube and outer rubber tread on the front as it has 90% original tread left. the front tire will likely get too dry and cracked whenever it gets worn down to the point the current rear tire is at? im pretty sure the 2 original tires are glued to the rims itself so it might be less of a headache to just put the new tire on the rear and deal with the front tire later on down the road.

my bike doesnt fit too well in my car ie Ford Fiesta hatchback but ive managed in the past to transport it in the car after removing the front tire. i aint gonna walk or ride the bike on a flat tire the 14 or so KM or the 4.5km to nearest bike shop. its the first time i had a bike tire expire on me like that but it likely wont be the last one. the rear tire lasted around 3700KM.

Your tube probably has a flat spot and/or developed holes over time. They're made of rubber and are designed to last maybe two years in perfect conditions. Get the tubes changed.

thank you for the reply, i took a light to properly see what the case was with the tire and its a bit hopeless... changing the tube wont work in my case, its not a tubular tire. its not glued to the rim but it has no tube that can be changed. the tube and the outer tread is complete unit to maintain the air pressure.

the most i can do is maybe lube the inner rim to line up the valve stem and put air in the tire. if there is indeed a flat spot or a tiny hole then its the end of the tire. it always held its pressure well up till today, it was able to drop to 45PSI and not go flat. at which point i did recheck the tire PSI. i was planning to do a bit more this year on it but the center tread is protruding somewhere between .03->0.75MM from the main body of the tube. 140KM extra likely wont make much of a wear difference but it does make for a flat spot rather likely... one side of the center tread is around .5mm high, the other side has a few flat spots where the tread and tube are the same level.

i was planning to change the tire in the next 140KM IE september 23-25 but i think i will need to change it a bit earlier than planned. the front tire is decent with some minor cracks on the edges of the center tread.

its fucking hilarious that it just happened today. i was day-thinking on my biking schedule for the year. planned to hit 1000KM from May to September, currently was at 855KM until i had the flat spot/leaking tube. i had plans to do bike today ie Friday and planned the days and KM to do up until the 25th. if you happen to plan something then its guaranteed to go to shit, if its not planned then its a 50/50 chance it will go to shit.

i know you love this format for pictures but tinypic is gone and i havent found a substitute yet for image hosting. the pic is the front tire with the dry cracking along the center tread, its pretty much uniform on both sides on its entirety.


EDIT: i got the tires installed at the bike shop. The rear tube had a leak so I scrapped it. The tube tape was torn as a result of trying to get the bike moving. I now have the new tube and ire on the front and the previous front tire on the rear. Will bike this Sunday and see how it now rides smile.gif.

My review on Joker as a DC fan .. it's a good film and I've loved Joaquin Phoenix since Gladiator & Signs. However, it was pretty boring and overly psychological for my taste. Nothing against Joaquin, it's just hard to live up to Heath's interpretation, that and Dark Knight is a much more dynamic film.

It's pretty pathetic that there's so much controversy about this movie, because it totally doesn't need it. It would stand out as a cult classic entirely on it's own without any sort of PR.

Personally, I wish DC would stop d🦆cking around and make a film on the Death & Return of Superman Taito arcade, or a Power Girl live action, or a Nightwing flick .. or even better .. an origins movie on Terry McGinnis in the vein of Batman Begins.

I give Joker 3 out of 5 stars ~ no offense to anyone who enjoyed it .. it's a solid film ~ just not my thing. alien2.gif
