Unfortunately, flats are one of those things that seems to get worse each time it happens, so no matter how good you get at repairing them, the next one will pose a new hassle.
In the midwest, we're experiencing quite the heat wave. The recent flooding has also contributed to a huge mosquito population. A few nights ago, I got a flat. I hadn't anticipated that once motionless I would be a feast for the little buggers. I patched the tube in record time, all the while slapping mosquitos. Unfortunately, in my haste, I created a pinch flat, requiring me to replace the tube. By the end, I was covered in welts.
Normally, I slather on sunblock before I ride. Now I guess I'll have to do bug spray too. And I hate the smell of both.
I suppose that experience wasn't as bad as when I got a nighttime flat in freezing rain.
