Regard for a moment this lowly weed: Known as goat head, or by the Latin name Tribulus Terrestris, this plant's job is to cause flat bicycle tires. Zoom in on it.

You give an old made-in-India Roadster clone one HELL of a tuneup, and you're in for one SUPER FUN ride. Really interesting once you get all of the kinks worked out.
Bike pee is stored in the balls.
You should really consider joining our Monday night rides.
Painting the frame. I can't believe I once thought we'd have this done in a winter. #OWwinterproject #myass.
