A couple of weeks ago, I saw a nasty gash on my front tire, so I changed it.
This morning, I found my rear tire was flat — it must have had a slow leak. So I patched it, pumped it up, got breakfast… and when I came back, it was flat again. There had been more than one (or my patch was bad, but I doubt that.) So I had to take it off again, and this time I just changed the tube.
This afternoon, I picked up a pushpin in my front tire, and it, of course, flattened.
I hereby announce to the universe that I’m quite ready to go the next several months without fixing my tubes and tires.
