Tire Gods hate me

I have no idea what's going on but I went almost 2 years without a flat and in the last 2 months I've had about 10 flats. All on different tires and different wheels. Just to qualify it for all of you who were thinking I was mounting tubes in a tire filled with glass. I finally got to do the Thursday night crit and I flatted on the first lap (just realized I flatted in front of the parking lot both times. Not too bad as far as timing goes) swung into the parking lot changed out the tube and did about 10 laps and flatted again. WTF?? I've spent about $35 on tubes in the last two months. That's fucking stupid. Aghhhh...


On another note, I need to race. I haven't raced in forever. Every time there has been a good race I'm always away on that weekend. Now it's going to be July and I'm going to suck in the heat.


On another side note, I hate when people are aloof. If you got something to say then say it. I just hate when people are your buddy one day and the next they act like they don't know you.

How about investing in a patch kit? $2 to repair 10-20 tubes instead of $35. Use the new tubes in the race wheels, commute on your patched tubes.
