I put my slicks on Friday when I got home and was pretty excited for the commute this morning. When I pulled out the bike my front tire was flat, I figured the valve stem was pushed up against another bike in the shed and let the air out because it stayed full when I pumped it back up. Mostly I was feeling too lazy to take the tire off and figured i could patch it at work if it really was leaking.
By the time I got to work it was almost flat, so I pulled out my patch kit and... the glue is dry. I had taken the spare tube for my studded tires out to replace it with my tube for the 28mm tires, except I forgot to actually put the tube in my bag. Le sigh.
I may have to get a ride to get a new patch kit / glue.
By the way, how to you guys keep your patch kit glue from drying out once you open it? Mine always is dry the next time i need it.
Edit - I meant studded TIRES. I don't normally wear a tie, and when I do I don't need the additional ice traction that studs provide.
