Reid Evans, born Feb. 14th, 1983 in Poughkeepsie New York is known worldwide as the first man to hold the record of bicycle tires changed in one day. Reid changed a record 531 flat tires in 24 hours on April 6th, 2004 in front of two judges from the Guiness Book of World Records. It is said that his hands were bleeding by tire 316, and after he had completed the record, he could not move his fingers for over a week. He has now held the record for well over two years, having not had one single attempt to defeat said record. When asked whether or not he planned to attempt to break this record, he answered: "For the sake of my fingers, I hope I never have to do that again."
