I remember a couple of flats back in the good old days,1960's as a kid. I learned how to patch a tube by watching the guy at the gas/service station fix the flat on my bike. Remember when car tires had tubes?

My road bike is pretty light and it is 14 years old with thousands of miles. It did get a new rear shifter (plus upgrade to 9 speed) when the old shifter wore out.

As far as I am concerned, many road bikes are just as strong as most mountain and hybrid bikes.
