So, I'm out on my ride today when I get a flat. No biggee. Whip off the rear wheel, pull out the tube, look/feel for sharp things in tire, and then reach for the spare tube in my back pocket. Spare tube would be the correct term as butyl tubing was spare on the spare tube. Apparently, I've been riding the last three months with a spare tube that I had cut-up, using the cut-out bits of tubing for useful purposes on the bike and elsewhere! I guess it's a good thing I've always got a patch kit with me on the bike.
