It pumps so slowly that you may as well walk to wherever you're going lol And they're not of much use unless you have a slow leak in the middle of nowhere.

I said I like guns, while you seem to like young boys who talk about guns. Guess that makes you a pedophile hippy.

Wrong on the first part, correct on the second part.
You can also adjust the hoop.

It was just an idea given that they went noisy after a week.
The front strut brace fixed some of the creaking for me.

I'm ok with that. Only the tips will be visible anyway.

Might check out the local metal supplier. Prices are negotiable and sometimes it makes sense when you factor in shipping.
