Nice! Always handy to have a spare Schrader valve hole or two.

I'm not an engineer - and I don't even have the sense to always wear a bike helmet; but I've a horrible feeling that someone, someday might not have the wit or irony detection needed to properly enjoy this thread.

Would it be too uncool for someone to state - for the record - what happens when a metal sidewall gives up with a tyre on it? I'm sure I read on the internet that it's not pretty.

Pious emoticon.
