I ride my bike to work… I'm a bike commuter

DID I SAY "FLAT?"

So yesterday, I’m running around the house like a mad man trying to get 1,000 things done at the same time.

In between a pause I had in the garage, I notice my Cannondale road bike hanging up and right underneath of it is my electric bike pump. “Hmmmm,” I think to myself… “Let me put some air in the tires while I’m here,” is my next verbal thought.

Bad mistake. I snapped the stem off my back inner tube while trying to “lock” the bike pump onto it. Damn!

No riding for me today. Need to put my spare tube on tonight.

Guess it could be worse. A “self inflicted” flat beats getting one out on the road.
