What is a usual rate and cause of getting a flat tyre?
Over the last 10 days I have had 3 punctures, all from '3 corner jacks'.
Two were on the front tyre of my hybrid (700c Kenda K shield tyres)
One was on the rear of my MTB (26" Maxxis Overdrive with Kevla belt protection tyres).
All were picked up when riding along the road and/or bike paths and not heading along any unsurfaced tracks or bushy type areas.
Am I doing something wrong or is this just very bad luck?
I thought having puncture resistant tyres might have helped but not so.
Is it worth having Slime tubes?
On the up side - I have now had a bit of practice at changing tubes and repairing on site.
Both my bikes have disc brakes and I now much prefer V Brakes when chaning a rear tyre.
