I know this probably belongs in the mechanic section of the forum, but the reason I am posting is. I got my first flat on the road yesterday on my new bike riding down the santa ana river towards the beach. And about 6 or so bikers passed me while I was changing it, and every single person asked if I needed help or if I had everything I needed. If any of you are out there reading this forum I just wanted to say thank you. It turned a bad experience into a good one. It made me feel good to be part of such a group of caring people. And I got the tube changed out without any problems and continued on my ride. Any of you had anything that happened while on a ride that made you think highly of other cyclists?
