|Up until six days ago I thought I was doing great with no punctures in the last 2500 miles. Then in the last 80 miles, over three rides, I get four punctures, on four different tubes on two different tyres! This is obviously some sort of payback for months of trouble free riding.
How many do you think I will get on tomorrow's ride?
|340 miles = 5440 / 16 Avg. Don't know median, chi, etc.||teamsloppy|

|Fr? Is that Father like in Catholic Priest?
The flats come in batches. I can go thousands of miles with no flats then have a couple a day. Winter is especially low flat season, late summer higher (goathead thorns, thorny tree leaves?).
|Yes, Father Ted Crilly is a priest...||Fr Ted Crilly|

|...from Craggy Island, just off the west coast of Ireland. The riding on the island isn't too great, but the locals here are a real bunch of characters who makes life interesting.|
|last year <50 miles, this year almost 1000 so far w/out a flat||cory|

|Haven't changed a thing--same tires, same roads. On one 22-mile RT commute last year I had six punctures. So far this year, nothing. Somebody else's turn....|
