Small nail

I went riding yesterday and I ran into a small nail. It's a super slow leak. They said they can't plug a bike tire. What to do now?

Call On the Border cycles in Spencer, if you want a plug patch.

i got a very small nail, possibly even a small piece of wire stuck im my rear tire last year and got talked into a new tire. this tire was maybe 1 month old. i hated to do it and everyone said i should go with a new tire. ugh. i wish i had patched it.
