Had my first flat tire today.

Recommended Posts

I have a few neighbors with bike so we decided to meet up for a ride, went up Black Mountain. After that over to the Hideout for lunch, we did about 100 miles in the backcountry. I had a flat on Mainstreet Ramona.  Repair went good, lucky for the shopping cart behind the store.

Did you patch or replace? If so, did you have the same size tube? I hear you can use a 21" tube in the back temporarily. Saves carrying more than one.

Yes all we had was a 21", I found it was really easier to get in and set the valve stem in the hole then times putting the in a 18"

There are options. People sell metal versions

Bagster, I will have a proper kit with a version of this. This job required stuff from three riders and lucky for the shopping cart.

Well dressed homeless people, looks like a riding gear explosion happened too. :) 

I thought the same thing; looked like a yard sale 🤣

I never patch, always carry both front and rear tubes.
