Is there a good side to every situation?
First panic. It's been a while since I took care of a flat. Tire off. But having trouble getting the tube out. Tube out then can't get the tire reassembled. My meeting is in an hour...
Watched a YouTube video. Tire reassembled. New assembly won't hold air. Now sadness. Headed off to Landry's Bike Shop in Natick, where I purchased my bike and take her for service.
Jerry offered to help. He gave me a hands on lesson on changing a tire. Explained to me where I may have gone wrong. And in 10 minutes I left with a perfectly assembled and inflated wheel and a new spare tube.
Happiness. Home. Bike reassembled. Meeting attended. Took the bike for a very short ride to check on the wheel's integrity. All is good.
