We just arrived back home a few hours ago from a trip around Lake Erie and I have a few questions.
First-Flats!! We had 4 of them. All rear wheel. When I examined the tube the punctures looked like a snake bit. The tires were,I will explain shortly. 28MM GatorSkins. We had rear panniers and a BOB trailer. The tires were missed during my pre-tour inspection!! But I did wax the frame!!!!
The last flat was right when we stopped for breakfast and we were only 3/4 miles from a bike shop. So I bought new 28mm GatorSkins and we rode the last 60 miles home with no flats!
So my question is what might have caused these flats as I could find no violation of the tire in the location of the puncture? So am I asking a 28mm tire to do too much?
The next question is about our Garmin 800. I have it mounted on the Stoker's handlebar and my Butt seems to get in the way of my wife's being able to see it at times!! And I have lost weight! My question is is there some type of extender that we could use to move it away from my butt?
