The feeling of dissapointement in yourself when you install the tire backwards

onto the rim.

You know that feel, bro?

I swear the arrows were pointing in the same direction minute ago, promise.

Zipties and tire irons bro.

Of the 900 tires I install each year I probably install one or two of them backwards.

Yep, done that. In the grand scheme of things, it is FAR from the most retarded thing I've done.

Similar to the feeling you get when you discovered you installed a tapered bearing upside down...and it's fused now to the stem and you have to bring it to a shop to cut it off. Except you take it to a different shop than the one you visited yesterday to cut off the last one because you feel too stupid to return.
