Riding along, sun going down, about 15 minutes from home when I hear this weird noise that I have never heard before. Sounded like something was in the spokes slapping the frame every time around. Then I realized what happened. I was about 1/4 mile from the nearest gas station. I had to get there because it was going to be dark soon. So I walked it over. I am glad I have the SPD shoes that you can still walk in. Took me about 45 minutes to figure out what I was doing. Broke both plastic tools that came with the repair kit. Just as I was filling up, a cop in an unmarked car pulled up and watched me. Didn't say a word, just watched. Like someone said before, I must have looked like I knew what I was doing with the tools scattered all about. Because nobody stopped to see if I needed help. I had two pin holes to patch. I am glad I double checked the tire after I put the patch on the first hole. I made it home and am taking the tire into the shop today to get the tube replaced. I am too afraid of getting the tube pinched or something. I really need to attend a seminar to learn how to do it right.
