What's missing?

Those of you with sharp eyes will notice there's something missing from this photo. It's the little thumb screw part of the presta valve that screws down and keeps air from leaking out. It came off inside my frame pump when I was fixing yet another flat a week or two ago. Finally remembered to upload the pics from the camera.

I also replaced the brake pads. The old ones, shown at the bottom, were significantly thinner than the new ones. No wonder I wasn't getting any stopping power from the rear wheel.

On the plus side, I got a batch of beer bottled tonight. Irish Stout. But you probably already knew that from the shamrocks.

Tires with air in them is overrated anyway.
