Default Re: Ever get a flat? What do you do?

My motorized bicycle is built on an old Schwinn "Suburban" bicycle which in the sixties was called a "Touring Bike". It has 27" x 1 1/4" high pressure road bike tires, and of course I had a flat on the rear one fairly early in my adventures. It wasn't especially noticeable though, and while the pavement felt a little more "nubbly" than usual I had full performance and good handling so I just rode it home.

I filled the leaky tube with that green mucus stuff to stop leaks, filled 'er up and its been fine for six months now.

Press onward!
