Dilemma; what to do, what to do?!look271

Ok, here's the deal. I had to replace a rear tube that had torn at the base of the valve stem. No big deal. However, when I put the tire back on, I put the label on the wrong side of the bike! OMG, a major fashion infraction! I've ridden it that way now for about 500+ miles and I'm afraid to f*&k with it since I've had no fl*ts. What do I do? =)

Whatever you do don't race it that way. You'll be lapped for sure.

The label isn't real noticable.

I recently replaced my rear tube. Prior to the replacement I had Shimano aligned in the noon and six position and the tire label at three and nine. When I put the tire back on the tire labels are at ten and four. OK OK you and me both.

kind of way. Phat.

The only reason I even line the side label with the stem is so I can find it easier...the stem, that is.
I'm going to fix it NOW!look271

If there was ever something that I have NEVER wanted to be, it is "Phat" or percieved in a hip-hop kind-of-way. Aaaaaaaaarrrrgggghhhhhhh!
Fix it, and make sure tube writing is on correct side also.. ntlongfellow68
