Back in the cage, again

The parts guy walked the isles and looked at the shelves for 10 minutes while I stood at the counter. Finally he said, "I looks like the tube is special... has a 90ยบ valve stem and we're out of stock on the brake shoes. But I have the tire you need."
So much for calling ahead.

Kinda kills the next day service on tire mounting, too.
So, I'm caging it again. For the next day or so.

Another way to ward off flats is to keep spare tubes, front and back, in the parts bin at home!

Conch: That is a capital idea! thx

We'll forgive you the cage if it's for a good cause! Conchscooter is full of it. You don't need spare tubes, you need a spare bike!

Irondad: That's an even more capital idea, but I like it!
