rolled the trek 7300 into the LBS today with three patches on the front tire. the mechanic said that i actually only got one flat. and the three others were probably the result of my not putting the tube in correctly, which makes total sense to me. he had to adjust the front brake a little too because i didn't release the brake when i took off/put on the wheel all three times, opting instead to deflate and squeeze the tire through. anyway, i'm signing up for a bike repair class ASAP. thanks for everyone's help. if i get another flat really soon, i'm going to upgrade tires to the best ones he has in the store.
the ones the bike came with are Bontrager Select Invert 700x38c and Alex TA19 double wall rims with stainless steel eyelets; Shimano C201, 32h rear, alloy quick release front hub; 14G stainless spokes.

i noticed my status is also junior member now. i think i should be demoted to extreme newbie again, 100 city miles in a week notwithstanding.
