WHY, AFTER 5 TUBES, PATCH KIT, 6 CO2 CARTRIDGES, A COTTON BALL, TWEEZERS, AND SOME 4 LETTER WORDS, IS MY TIRE STILL GOING FLAT???????
I had a flat tire (see a prev blog) about a month ago and my tire/wheel has not been the same. I have taken it apart, taken it in, taken it out for dinner, taken it for ice cream, and now I'm just going to take it to the junk yard.
It's a pretty new tire so I don't want to REALLY spend another $60 on another! I have ridden on it a few times and it has made it thru the ride but by the next morning, it's flat again. This last Sunday's ride turned into a 7 hour ordeal for 70 miles. And the times that we were riding, we were riding at a pretty good clip. But every 20 min or so I had to stop for air. GRRRRR.
Then I find out my OTHER BIKE IS FLAT TOO!!! What's the dealio????
I must be riding over glass in my sleep and sabotaging my bikes. I have a race this weekend and I have never been in a race and gotten a flat but I guess I better prepare for it. It seems like this is what's in store for me.
I have learned a GREEN thing thru all of this... your co2 and tubes ARE recycleable. YAY! Too bad you can't refill them like propane.
hmm... propane tires......
