There's not a lot of room for bigger tires. Maybe 27-28 max. Once this becomes a regular thing, I'll get bigger tires. Or until I get my first flat.

So you're recommending a tube AND a patch kit?
I am a belt-and-suspenders kind of guy. I carry a tube and a patch kit, a CO2 cartridge and a frame pump. The first flat gets a new tube and CO2. The second and subsequent flats (it's rare, but it happens) get a patch and a pump. I figure I'm already late at this point, so might as well take the time.
