Re: RANT! flat tires
I used to experience a lot of lats on the inside of the tube from the spoke nipples.
On all of my bikes (motor and pedal), I have had good luck wrapping the rim 2x with either electrical tape or 1/2" fabric medical tape. Couple that with a good tube and tire liners and you should be good. Geez- I hope I didn't just jinx myself!
