    I'm sort of meticulous about finding the offending debris which caused the flat so as to not repeat the problem a mile down the road. That tends to add a bit of time.
    Also depends on the wheel. The roadie is easy / The studded tires on the 1x1 practically break my fingers.

    How fast can I...nvm? huh?

    One poster mentioned you may be talking about fixing a flat? About 5 to 10 minutes depending if on the front or rear and how motivated I am.

    10.76 km in 17mins 14 seconds ? 49.2 km/h average ? You're not doing it 10 times a week ? What's your training routine ?

    Hmm... not 49.2, but clickety click...
    17' 14"=17.23'=0.29hr
    10.76km/0.29hr=37.5km/hr
    Curb hops, grass, and sidewalks! I heartily approve.

    So why would you do such a thing? You see I'm a separatist, I'm not responding to him, I'm responding to others, thus I'm legally OK according to TFS Jakes rules.

    Don't forget, time is on your side until it runs out, then who's side will time be on?

    Yes, because then we enter into a place where time doesn't exist...or at least we won't care about the time...depending on where we will spend eternity we may or may not care about time that is.
