Changing out flat tubes in the middle of nowhere!!!!

I just took a shot of what's packed in my vest. I carry a tube, as well as patches, and 5 CO2 bottles.

Changed one today, I pack a little less and virtually nothing on tune up rides.
A tune up ride is a 38 mile loop I do at Cow Mt that is 20 minutes from my house.

I always carry a plug and wrench and a clutch cable. Up here you are always dicing between
trees. Our levers/hands are always well protected. Maybe two/thirds of what you have.
 
If you get lucky, you find the nail in the tire at camp, not on the trail -

A nice shade tree, portable air compressor, and a cold beer. The fact that it was 100 degrees wasn't bad, but the 4 flies buzzing around my head during the change was very annoying.
I do agree that letting someone else carry all the tools on the trail is the best way to go :banana:.
And also pretend not knowing how to change a tire, ask if they can show you how :banana::banana:.
 
Or better yet maybe Mike In Fresno could start a "how to wash a KTM thread"!

Hey K-rack, maybe you should start a new thread after your epic ride report: "how to change your dirty undies in the middle of nowhere" :P

Gotta love that old thread. The scars from the whipping I took are still there.:shocked: Thanks.:moon::wave:
 
Gee, thanks for reminding me of that, I had just about forgotten about that fiasco, once again get to feel the shame...........

Never again.

Next time, the tire gets fixed, or the bike rides back to camp with a flat and NOTHING is said or posted.

Never again. :foul::foul:
 
Hope ya know I'm kidding. If we can't poke at each other than we might as well quit posting. At the very least, I carry a bunch of tools now and learned a lesson.:thumb:
 
I know that you weenie. I probably come off pissed 'cuz of the chili cheeseburger / patron / tri tip withdrawal.

And the yelling, that's what's been missing from the trips lately, you are very vocal, did you know that? I am surprised Chris hasn't killed you.

:devil:
