Enough already!

Four flat tyres in 10 days is ENOUGH!!! I am quite proficient in changing them thanyouverymuch, I don't need any more practice now. I did notice, however, that along with the fateful piece of wire that found it's way inside, there were two or three other pieces of glass trying to work their way into the tyre. Once again I ask the question, if every other drink commercially available is only sold in cans or plastic bottles, why doesn't it apply to beer as well? If people are that worried about the taste of it (and surely nobody will notice after three beers) they can always go to a pub and drink it from a glass there.

Then, of course, I'd need to solve the problem of all the broken glass and other debris from car smashes on the roads of the Gold Coast. Fortunately, I provided that answer in my previous post.

Hi came arrcoss your blog googling for others touring in SE Qld. Dont know if you have reply notification on for months old posts but...
Have you tried puncture resistant tires? I ride through smashed glass seveal times a week & since fitting vittoria randonneurs I have never had a flat, just go over them every week or two pulling out chunks of glass & bits of wire to stop them working deeper in the tire. Saves a lot of repair time. Specialized armadillo & conti top touring are other options.
