The new wheel cover

First of all, am I raising these kids right OR WHAT!? Here's my barely 5-year-old Catherine doing her chores, pumping up Mommy's tire to the proper pressure. She gets a time-out if the pressure is off by 5 p.s.i.



Next, here is the new wheel cover, painstakingly installed. What a pain in the butt! I sure hope it makes me fast! If so, it's worth the whole $65 and more! It dings up pretty easily too, I've already noted.


I'll ride with it and report back in the next few days.

The wheel cover is great!

Now you need a deep dish front...or even better a trispoke!!!

Uh, yeah, that would be my first choice.

But those cost a lot more than $65.

I'd like to see her put 120 psi in a tire. She'd need to be wearing a lead weight or something. Its hard work!

I'm very interested to hear your review. Its a cheap way to get a nice toy. Now, did your shop fit the disc to your wheel, or was it a special disk for your specific wheelset?

Nancy Toby said...

Yeah, I only make her do 110 psi tops. :-)

Nah, it was a strictly mail-order $65, no fitting or anything. No shop involved!!
