Had a rear tire flat on the way to work yesterday. I had chosen to ride a bike with clinchers instead of sewups. So instead of Stan fixing it for me in 30 sec (plus my pumping time) it took me 15 minutes (plus pumping time) to patch the tube. A tiny tear with no visible cause in the tire. Later in the afternoon I noticed the tire flat again. So I swapped in a new tube. Haven't had time to examine the offending tube yet, but it has several patches already so it's probably headed for the trash anyway.
