I have a few questions for ya all. Not interested in sparking a debate or anything but just looking for opinions and advice.
1- Tubes: Do you patch them or throw them away and use new ones? At what point do you throw them away if you patch them?
2- Do you ever buy the tubes in bulk?
3- CO2 inflating heads: do they make any with a psi gauge? I blew mine off the bead today.
4- For the tires, do you ever swap the front and back to even out the wear? And at what point to do throw the tire away and get a new one? I run gatorskins and my pair has around 1700 miles on them so far. Wondering if I should get a new back one or swap out the front and back.
And if you say gatorskins suck, please give other suggestions of tires. I ride through A LOT of glass in one area of my commute and no I cannot change routes as this is the safest route to take. I call the area "the glass gardens".
(I did cross post this so for the folks who hate that, dont get your panties in a wrinkle!)
