The point83 membership recognises that flat tires are an inevitable part of cycling. Pursuant to this, the ride will remain with a rider who has the misfortune of a flat tire.
However, riders have the following responsibilities:
When you notice you have a flat, start screaming your head off. We cannot wait for you if we do not know you are experiencing a "mechanical."
Inflate your tires to at least the minimum pressure printed on the side of the tire before every ride.
If you can't fix a flat in 5 minutes, let someone else do it for you.
Bring a Pump, tire levers, patch kit, and spare tube with you. Every ride.
Look at your pump. Is it a Topeak Road Morph G? If you answered no to this question, you need to go get a road morph now. Yes, you do.
If you're a poser with a solid axle, bring the right wrench to get your wheel off.

Note: Ben would be listed here, but his time is "too valuable" to be spent "dealing with your fucking flats, goddamnit!"
