I'm the flatman

While biking to work this morning I heard a sound that I'm not at all familiar with, PPsssssssttttt. Oh man, I got a flat.

Fortunately, I was only 2 km from work, so I made it there by slowly riding on the rim. I honestly can't remember the last time I got a flat while riding. I do remember having a tube explode on me while filling it, but not while riding. After taking the wheel apart, turns out my tire blew the side wall and the tube popped. Oh well, I suppose I should be satisfied with eight years out of that tire...

I just changed my tubes last week because I had the same worries. I think they where the original ones too. Turns out that tubes are real cheap. $10 tax in, for 2. Am I ever glad that I changed them now.

I found what I needed at Wal-Mart, of all places. Two tires and one new tube, less than $25.
