Well my second day commuting did not go very well. I drove to the park and did my quick change and jumped on the bike and *pop* went the back tire. Luckily I was ten feet from the car. Forget 50/50 odds it is always the back tire. After inspection it was revealed the rim tape had a whole. Since I don't carry rim tape and did not want to mess with a temporary fix unless it was an emergancy, I had to throw the bike back in the car and finish my commute by car.
The tape is less then 2 years old. Should I replace it every year to be safe?
I should be back on the bike by Wednesday.
