Getting Nailed

Bicycle Stories readers might be aware that I collect bolts, nails, nuts and screws at Tampa Bay area intersections when I'm at red lights. I collected three large jars' worth and sold the hardware for $5 on Craig's List.

We all know that there's all kinds of debris on the road and yesterday afternoon my rear tire on my errand bike caught this nail on Nebraska Avenue.

Check it out. Remarkable, the nail missed the tire tube. I pulled the nail out and continued pedaling away

Man, you weren't kidding the other day when you said, "NOTHING stops this bike."

I have a small collection of nails and, in one case, something that looks like a railroad tie (!), that have punctured my tires.
