However, where do various people draw the line between fixing a flat on the road and limping the bike home? Today, I got a flat on the rear tire (the one with about 6700 miles on the tire) about two miles from home on the way home. It was over 90F and the leak seemed slow enough that it was simply easier to pump up the tire, go a couple of blocks, and then pump it up some more. SOMEHOW, despite the periodic effort of using the mini pump, it seemed better than fixing the flat in the hot sun.
Maybe I've just gone soft...
