How big is the hole? If its a pin hole, or just a small hole and not a gash, you can use a tire boot. Park tool has them available

It's a flexible material that's kind of hard, credit card sized and thickness. You cut to shape, place it on the interior of tire, it has a sticky side to it

It'll allow you to ride for a while

If you don't wanna buy it ($5.00 at Bicicletta) I can give you a piece if you come into richmond

It's still a little cold out and it will affect your performance. Get some leg and arm warmers next time you ride up there. Make sure you hydrate well in advance and during your ride!

Capilano Alumni here!

Hey azncreationz,

Do you have any spare group sets?

And how soon do you need the spacers? I should be able to get some...soon'ish.

True output is 'only' ~700-800 lumens based on reviews, but for the money, you can't beat it.

I went with this light mainly for the price factor.

It should be about double output of what I'm using now, hopefully much more reliable.

I commute in shorts these days. I just find my upper body needs insulation but my legs are fine without. Mind you I'm a polar bear and don't mind the cold.

I'm in only for a casual ride. I'm not up to snuff for longer rides unfortunately.

And by casual, I mean that there will be a stop to hard park at a coffee shop and pose.

Uh, are you kidding? I'm not a store! If I had an entire spare group set, I'd be eBaying that or building up my next bike! hahaha... No, I only have various bits and pieces.
As for the washers, doesn't really matter. I've ordered another set of cleats, so there should be washers included. I'm just asking now, in case I can get some like TODAY, so I can go test ride a bike/new shoes. Just have to wait a couple weeks.

Thanks for the offer 604CEFIRO, dukes luckily had some spare tires lying around and I got a wheel off of him.

I'm game for riding anytime this weekend but I'm busy Friday morning/afternoon and will probably start my ride around 2pm.

It should be more than sufficient, and have been quite reliable based on the reviews I've followed. The major beef with them was the battery sealing was not great for guys MTB'ing in terrential downpour, but it was adequate in most other cases. For $30 bucks, meh.
