I rode to the store today and when i came out the rear tire was flat. Cruiser tires get flat very easy. There was a free air machine at the store and I had a patch but it would not stick and i didnt hav glue. Luckly i had plastic ties to tie the tire to the wheel so the tire wouldnt come off while i walked the bike 1 mile home. If anyone goes far from home carry patches,glue,tire inflator,or a spare tube. A airless solid tube probally would be best on the rear wheel.
