    Double Flatted on this mornings commute!

    One is ok but 2 in 10 minutes!!! I guess it happens huh? After the first I rememebered I left my CO2 and spare tubes etc on my road bike.. Had to wake up girlfriend to drive up and bail me out!!!
    Then the second 10 minutes later -same rear wheel....Rode 500 metres with rear flat to get off the Sydney Harbour Bridge Cycleway (ludicrous to stop during peakhour and cause an accident) fixed the second - nothing inside the tyre..... Just bad luck.
    1 hour late for work...Still better than driving and sitting in that peak hour traffic!!!

    Better check that tire again, there is always something in the tire.

    ^...unless you pinched the tube when fixing the first flat.
