I replaced the tube and would have been happier to replace the tire as well, but I don't have any more on hand. I'm thinking about making a trip over to Performance this afternoon so that I can get a fresh tire on front before the race next weekend.
It was a beautiful day and we rode from our house to the Bosque trail and down to a nice shady rest spot. Had a snack, then turned around and rode back home.
Sure, it's probably too little too late, but still a confidence booster for the Patriot which is now 6 days away (Eeek!)
Happy Labor Day!!
