New tire

Got a new tire for my bike on the weekend. I was going to rebuild it from scratch, but that meant buying a new rim, new spokes, a spoke wrench, etc. The only thing I might get to keep was the hub, and I wasn’t so in love with the hub that came with the bike. I might have saved about $20. Also, making a new tire up from components would take a good deal of fine tuning and balancing, and it would have required a lot of time yelling at my bike. I think I made the right choice.
Now to get up the nerve to ride my bike again. I’m actually eager to try that same construction site with the new tire.
