So I finally got a new tire for my bike. I had great plans to ride over my moms for breakfast with family. I always have great plans. I woke up early changed my tire. I even oiled my chain had a rain storm a few days before. I hadn’t rode in awhile so going up the hills harder then normal. I got to my favorite part of riding where I am slightly out of breath and pouring sweat. It was then I realized the old stupid tire was flat. I tried to pump it up with my frame pump but I realized air was coming out of the stem. I live in the desert I usually get about 4 or 5 goatheads a ride. So I have kevlar tires and liners and sealing tubes. I never once thought I could get a flat from my stem. Luckily I my uncle the professor was there so he helped me get a new tire.
