    Are you asking if anyone here is involved in the commercial manufacturing of bicycle tires?

    Step one grow rubber trees, Now some people will argue about the quality of synthetic rubber, and its supperiotiy. You just look them dead in the eye and say shut up. Step two drill a hole. It needs to be at least the size of a baby chipmunk. Any smaller and it won't work, any larger and you going to upset the mother chipmunks. Step three lite a fire and melt the rubber out of the tree. Step four lunch. Step five, awake from massive fume exposure and procede to step six step six, make tire by punching rubber relentlesly and calling out the name of the bully who pulled your pants down in studyhall, BRIAN BRIAN BRIAN! Step whatever mold them to your bike, now your going to need a hairdryer to finish it off. Hold it aprox. three to 33 inches from the molded rubber. Go to your kitchen and get a butter knife. Heat it on the stove. Next go back into the "lab" or whatever it was before the police condemed it and cut the swirly designs into the tire. You don't have to it's purely for decoration. Enjoy your new tires!

    What you and the teacher did behind closed doors is none of my business, I'm just saying some guys have all the luck. Do you still keep up with Mr. Carter?

    I think he means building the actual rims and adding spokes to them

    Did you tell him I'm on twospoke? I told him in our last correspondence but last time I checked Leavenworth was still heavily censoring his mail. I miss Bubbles.
