I've had many flats, but this was a first for me. Somehow I managed to break my valve stem. It happened on my commute home from work. Sitting in traffic on 5th street in Coralville, I attempted a track stand. Well, I suck at track stands and somehow managed to hit my valve stem with my heel. The next thing I hear is a pssssssssssssssst and I'm stuck with a flat tire.
Anyway, I got to thinking. It might be cool if the bike library could give a monthly bike seminar or something. The first one could be "How to fix a flat." We could even try to partner with one of the local bike shops. They could bring in tubes, patches, pumps etc to sell or just demo to the attendees. I can't think of a topic for the next seminar, but I'm sure someone could come up with something.
What do you think?
