Yeah this may be the answer 😬 Until about last year I always went to a bike shop if I had a flat. Barely ever had flats. Replaced my tubes three times this year and got a flat again shortly after each time. I am clearly not cut out to be a bike mechanic.
@aaronpk I worked at bike shops for a dozen years and rarely ever got flats. I got a better paying job in tech and my flats-in-a-year rate has gone up, no joke, at least 5x. I’ve angered the bike gods.
