We had 7 flats on our weekly Saturday Club Ride yesterday (there were 6 of us). Luckily we had plenty of co2 cartridges and spare tubes. It had rained earlier and it seemed most of them were caused by our wet tires picking up small stones. It finally got so bad it was comical. This has to be a record.

Don't tell HOWARD. He'll go out and get 8 just so he can hold the record.

about a week ago i had 5 in one ride, something in the rear tire i couldn't find? After the 5th flat i called a sag, no sense putting co2 in for a few miles. And yes i had co2 cos after the third flat i pumped as much as i could and rode to the lbs to get more, i carry 2. One rider 5 flats my personal record that i hope i NEVER repeat!
BTW my next moove was to buy a NEW rear tire, since then about 120 miles no flats.
