After 545 miles of riding the ALC, I didn't get a single flat and what happens today? 3 flats in less than 10 miles! The last one made a hole so small I could barely see it. I'm just lucky I was close enough to a Starbucks to put the tube through some soap and water. From now on I'm carrying a bottle of soapy water with me. That helped a lot. I literally stood there for at least 10 minutes looking for a super tiny hole - never would have found it w/o soap. Once I slapped some soap on there, I found the culprit in about 20 seconds - way faster!
