Update on the tire



15 days and 150 miles into the new year and this is my second flat tire.



I had thought the flat was due to the - 3°F temperatures causing a pinch flat. Nope, that would be a puncture.

The inside of the tire feels fine and the hole in the tube was small. The tube is patched and I should be good to go for the ride home, forecasted to be around 8°F. I'm beginning to think of excuses to drive tomorrow...

Feel free to use my excuse, which, in case you haven't guessed, is "It's frickin' COLD out."

Sounds like a work from home day to me if you have the option. :-)

Don't know what you roll with at the moment, but I've had a pretty good run with Marathon Supremes. Dug a lot of glass out of them but have yet to flat. Dived into a few potholes as well.

The downside, of course, is the price...
