2 Flats in a Week!

Seems like this is just my time of year to get flats. Last year around this time I picked up a roofing nail, 2 large staples (at one go!) and hit half a smashed beer bottle hidden in some leaves! This year, glass has been the culprit, slashing an almost new tire last Saturday and creating a slow, invisible leak today. So tonight I'm off to the bike shop for another set of tires. The Maxxis Zenith Hors Categorie ones I've been using for 7+ months require special ordering, so I'm going to try Bontrager Race X-Lites which the shop owner thinks I'll end up liking better anyway. I'm getting good at fixing flats, but I hope I don't have anymore for awhile!
