Long valve, extra long valve, extra light, latex, heavy duty training...

Actually, the last flat I had was at the Air Force Academy road race. I then went all winter long without, then boom, three in a row, plus one. Knock on wood, I think I'm good for another while.

seriously. Pump up before every ride and I'm good to go.

I did have a rim strip problem with the new bike but some olde school cloth rim strip fixed that shi*.

I gotta hand it to the people out riding and running in the heat wearing masks. Holy smoke, that must be hard. Friend of mine turtled his sport boat in a race last week and wondered why he got so exhausted swimming back and righting it. Mask.

Who has six new tubes around at any given time?

I used to buy 20 at a time, 10 MTB, 10 road.

But, ls01, just use the adhesive tape like Stan's, and as wide as the whole rim bed. It doesn't matter if tubeless-compatible or not; that's the best way to avoid the strip moving over.

Yes to this or an adhesive rim strip.

I am surprised you are not thinking about Roundabouts. Perhaps you have changed your ways

I use them so infrequently that I worry about dry rot in the one I carry in my seat bag

Specialized helmets have a "hairport". So, it's no big deal.

two waves from pedestrians this morning. Things are looking up.

There were many riders, runners, and walkers on today's ride. Most of them waved.

Velox rim tape is such a pleasure to work with. Reusable, too!

IKR?

I probably have that in total, but they're all different sizes.

A cup or coffee followed by a bike ride. It's been four months. Guess what the plan is for tomorrow.

I also had a pre-ride coffee....

...and a mid-ride coffee.

New wheels are tubless compatible. This morning I punctured 6 tubes trying to mount new conti 40000's on them. I also noticed the rim strip is not helping things, it slides over and reveals spoke holes,, then pop. Another flat.
Am I loosing my mind? I've never had problems like this mounting tires before.

ls01 , living in the future.
