    Out of curiosity, do you go to golf threads and tell them how stupid it is to chase a ball around a field? Maybe you could go to archery boards and tell them the Middle Ages are over. What the heck,...

    I had C+1 flats the first time I tried CO2. Went home, ordered a Lezyne mini pump that fits in my seat bag, and haven't messed with CO2 since. It takes around 200 pumps to get my road tires up to 100...
