Flat Tire

Walked out the door and went to hop on the bike and noticed something didnt look right. Checked the tire pressure on the tires an sure enough the rear tire is flat. Found a nail in the middle of the tire. What sucks is the tire only hase just a little over 200 miles on it. Im going to start buying 2 rears at the time seems like every other new tire i buy gets a flat within the first 500 miles.

I just got a flat on my fairly new tire. I used fix a flat to repair the hole in the tire. Do we have to replace the tire if we get a flat???

I commute more than take the twisties so I have bt023s.

NEVER USE FIX A FLAT unless it is an EMERGENCY SITUATION.

if you have any way possible, just take the wheel/tire off and have a reputable shop do a proper patch plug with the vulcanizing glue.

fix a flat is a mess, and it usually does more harm than good (unless you are stranded in the desert)
