Question: When is a wheel+tube not a wheel+tube?
Answer: When it's a freakin' piece of crap. Like Lucy's rear wheel.
It's gone flat [read: blown out] twice in as many days, forcing me to walk her home each time. There's a problem with the spoke wells along the inside of the rim, the tube tends to blow out at these weak points. This is not good.
So far, duct tape has not solved the problem, which means that the situation is truly dire.
Updates to follow.
Update:Fixed for now. I fixed it the same way I fix every other problem in my life. More duct tape. Lots of it. Bring it on, world.
