Speaking of tomorrow, did you find out what caused the two flats? Because if you did not, you might be looking at a third flat pretty soon.

Last summer I had a flat, and I did not have enough time to really check the outer tyre while changing the tube. Next day, another flat. This time I went through the outer tyre carefully (or so I thought). Nothing. Next day, another flat. I pinpointed the area where the flat was, took a flashlight and still it took me some time and digging to find the small shrapnel of glass embedded in the tube. Finally got it out with really thin pliers. No more flats that summer, I'm happy to say.

Just a tip:

Try using some punctuation. It will make your writing much more readable.
