Posted:Hey, I was just wondering if anyone knows any tricks to getting bicycle tubing onto wooden staffs? Do I need to use like vaseline to help? The piece I'm trying to put on is onto a 1" diameter staff, that should fit, right? First time trying inner tube out, seems like a pain in the ass to put on, anyone plz help!!

Posted:confused what is a 'lazer'?

that is actually a follicle growth dehumidification device (with added seramide enhancers and vitamin HP7+ intensifiers) - or at least that's what the scientist on the advert said...
