    Flat Rant

    My string of flats keeps growing: Early August--sidewall cut; early September, after 4 weeks without the bike--rim strip problem; mid September--snakebite; yesterday--a piece of glass. I've given up believing I can ride very far without fixing a flat.

    And the wind is making speeches.

    Four flats, four different causes. That is bad luck. On the other hand, How 'bout those Rams today?

    What kind of tires?
    How bout some specialized armadillos with a tire liner with that squishy stuff in your tube?
    Maybe a plow in front of your bike.
