is the ink on the shin inspired by Rage?

i'm going to have to try the zip ties or ratchet strap sometime for kicks.

Are you sure Cycle Gear balances for free?

Sweet! I'm also a big time rage fan.

When I worked at Cycle Gear (many years bacK), we charged for it. Things might have changed since, or may vary depending on who you are dealing with.

I'm going to keep the rest of what I want to say to myself...
If im going to take a tire off, im going to need one mounted and balanced anyways. I would save all the hard work sweat and time by just handing it over to a friend for 10 bucks. cant beat that. but thats just me. good write up though
