Reply To: Spare Tire?

last year is the only year I have had any tire problems on RAGBRAI.   I’m pretty careful and always put new tires on a few weeks before RAGBRAI, but last year I ran over some glass and flatted.    Then when putting in the new tube I discovered a cut in the tire, so ended up buying one.   

You can get by without lugging a tire along and probably be fine, but a folding bead tire does not weigh much and if you have room to carry one, I would suggest doing so.   Sometimes I will bring a hydration pack but remove the water bladder from it and just use it as a backpack.    In there I will carry a spare tire.   It’s not often you need one, but when you do, it’s nice to have one along.
