It doesn't seem worth discussing the effect of patches without knowing what tires he's using.

Technically, it may be Spring, but functionally it is Winter,

so we need marginal topics to consider.

Continuing to be house-bound, there may be ample time for discussions of

wheel balancing, tire sprue clipping, and aero cable housings.
