Being the wizened-elderly-wannabe at times, I offer up advice that sometimes pans out. For example, I always tell people they should have a spare inner tube on hand in case they have a flat. Swapping the tubes out is usually the quickest way to resume your bike ride. Hardly original on my part, but tried-and-true worthwhile advice nonetheless.
This morning about four blocks away from work I noticed something about the bike didn't feel right. Coasting along I looked at my tires and saw the rear one was low and quickly fading. I walked the last two blocks.
Now I always have a spare tube on hand, but there was a slight problem. I used it last week. I didn't patch the one I took out.
So what'd you do during your lunch?
