flat.

If anyone could help out and send me in the right direction, it would be appreciated. On my way to work, came upon what looked liked a D-cup sized rock, hit it and rode it halfway flat to work in stafford. Do i fix-a-flat it since i have the here in Napa, or get a new tire from cycle gear?

plug the tire, find a place that will patch it if you are that concerned. I plugged a motorcycle tire for the first time about a month or two ago and it's been holding with out any issues. super easy too! kit cost about ten bucks at walmart.

i've had a tire patched too and never gave any problems. it was fine even on a track day... granted it was level 1 it still did fine!

so with that said you dont need to wait until tuesday! plug it fill it and roll, even if it's a temp fix

We also offer auto tech services if u have a problem with your car we can also fix it. Dont go shop around look for bikes and settle for what they can give you or get turned down at the big dealerships cause your credit we can't help you fix that but we can get you back on a bike with 1500 down job verification and references. We will also open earlier for you or even stay open later for you. I.e say you have a flat Sunday morning. No one to call to get your tire mounted at that time of night well we can do it here we try to treat you like a friend not a customer cause we all have a passion to ride
