The last time I tried to commute to work, bad things happened.
I got two flat tires, had to push my bike 3 miles, and ended up ruining the tire on the Trek. This weekend, while waiting for (kevlar plated) replacement tires, I took the Diamonback out for two rides. I kind of forgot how nice the diamondback can be, and so I thought I would commute on it, until the Trek’s new rubber gets here from Wallingford.
Sadly, the only 26″ tires I have are my studded winter tires, and the knobby mofo’s I got for my mountain biking expedition.
So, I stopped by the LBS after work today, and picked up some new, armor plated slicks for the Diamondback.
This time, shit’s gonna be different!
That’s two tubes (from different vendors), two patch kits (one glueless, one not), two tire levers, a pump, and a CO2 inflator.
I think I have the flat-tire thing under control at this point. Now if I can just manage to get out of bed on time, I’ll be all set.
