Things I learned this week

  1. How to change a tire.
  2. That even at a tire shop, the source of a leak is found by the super-high-tech method of pouring soapy water on it and looking for the bubbles.
  3. That inflating a tire, deflating it, removing it, patching it, replacing it, and reinflating it takes about ten minutes, if you have the right equipment and know how to use it.
  4. That the people that own this equipment charge $12 to use it for you and remount the tire.

So, a big shout out to the super-competent dude at Jimmy Walker Tires on Main that fixed my tire. Seems to be holding up just fine.
