Since I was 16 I've had an EXTREME allergy to most types of rubber and bicycle tubes are diffinitely no no. All the years that I road my bmxs' around it wasn't that big of a deal, I was usally around some one that could fix it for me if I had a flat. But now I'm starting to ride road bikes and I really want to ride to work as much as possible when I move into my new place( its only 3.5 miles from the office, I really don't have any excuses not to since I'll be that close). Right now my only plan is to pack a bee-sting kit, some nitrile gloves along with a regular flat repair kit...and my cellphone so they can find my swelled up body in someones yard if it gets reeeeeally bad. Oh yeah, and to pray to the tire gods, ALOT!!!! Any one had to deal with this? Suggestions, maybe something I haven't thought of?
