The NY Post reports that the new strollers--BOB, Mountain Buggies, Phil & Teds, and Bugaboos and the like--have air-filled tires, which sometimes get flats. Which need to be fixed at the bike place in Park Slope. Which is just the excuse the kid-free commenters on Curbed needed to remind us of the Park Slope Parent/Al Qaeda connection.
Ironic since I'm sure the blowouts are no doubt caused by Prospect Park Westside bombs, and not parents overloading their rigs and over-inflating their tires. Bugaboo's recommended tire pressure, 15-16psi, still feels squishy to the touch, and I find myself always wanting to firm it up.
Of course, by writing about the brave heroes at the bike shop, Post reporter [and card carrying member of the media elite] Jeremy Olshan now gets to jump the line with impunity.
