I see some pretty cool YouTube videos that involve lighter fluid and a match. Anyone ever try this??

I don't have any tubeless bike tires, but when I worked in a tire shop, we had a strap that we would cinch along the center line of the tread, and it would force the beads out to the rim.

Saw this on Vintage Philly. Brought back memories. I worked in a cart just like that during the summer of '82. $25/day in cash at the end of each day. Usually all $1 bills. That was good money back then. Mom didn't even mind if I dropped a few dollars at the arcade after work. I believe Bil Keane was from Philly.

There was a little ridge that the rim could sit on, otherwise it would have been a major pain in the ass.

I always think of him as an Arizonan, but yep, he was born in Philly, got to AZ in '59.

Really I just want to see that team stymied in a contentious contract dispute and set back for years. :trainwreck:

But itís Americaís team, man. What kind of New England transplanted commie are you?

I saw that too, but the explosive pyrotechnics seems more trick.

Most of the carts were owned by Greeks. Many of them would smuggle cash back to Greece in the summer and eventually retire back there. They would sell the ďbusinessĒ to another Greek who would come over and run it, or their kids would take over. My boss did the latter. In Ď91 I stopped at a cart for a pretzel. The guy working the cart said ďYou used to work for my dad.Ē

A few minutes down the road, the car started to noticeably drift to one side, but we were less than a mile to our destination - the bike shop. The wife needed a helmet and I needed some new tubeless valves, so she did a little shopping while I swapped the wheel in the parking lot.


you just canít catch a break from essential things breaking.

Thatís the way I used to feel about the Giants before they stopped wanting to be the doormats. :lol:

They could teach a masterclass in winning meaningless late-season games that do nothing but wreck their draft position.

So if I may brag on AG for a bit, for the techier-minded among you, this is what she's been working on for over a year:

The number of times I've heard the names Hera and Hercules during lockdown...

Greek. But I'm sure it's better impressive to those who understand it.

All I can say is that if you decide to try this, you need to make a video.

I can try, but if I need 1 hand to squirt the fuel and 1 hand to hold the lighter/match I wonít have a hand to hold my iPhone. And if I ask mrs datlas to help she wonít let me play with fire.
