For a few months recently I let a slow leak slide. At the end I would pump up, ride to work, then after work come out to a flat tire, pump it up, ride home. I also needed a tire change, so I took everything off, and ended up patching three holes in two tubes.

Currently I have a flat tire again. I happen to have to drive a lot this week because of things I have to go to after work, so the bike is sitting flat in the garage. If I have time to replace the tube Wed then I will ride Thu.

Also I started noticing when I would shift down to power up the steep driveway, my chain/cassette would slip. Not quite sure whether it was actual slip from a worn cassette, or I hadn't shifted quite right. The first time I noticed that was probably 5 years/10,000 miles ago.
