Most of my rides are local and I always bring a phone. I can't see getting a flat that often. If I need a taxi or ride from family or friend one day so be it. I will prolly also get better clinchers too later in the year for maybe colder rides or any rides that might be hard to get a ride if stranded. I've had one flat in two years. I will pay a shop to fix it. I can change a clincher just not the fastest as I flat rarely and don't practice bec I work full time, ride and sew.
I don't want discourage any women. We can do it. Just may need more practice to do it in a reasonable time. I used to work on bikes, building them completely, so I do want encourage woman to learn as much as they want. Just for me I've got my sewing hobby I can barely get done as it is. I worked on bikes before they were as complicated as they are today. I've also built computers. Just these days I rather pay someone to work on my bike and have time for other things.
I really want to do my own experiment with the wheels. I will see how much benefit I think they provide and at very least hope they look cool on my already sweet ride. I will hafta post photos when I get them.
I got lost in Catskills during a race (don't ask!) and I didn't flat, but I just bonked and had no idea how get back so I ended up getting a like 50 mi ride from a nice lady, but I certainly don't want rely on hitchhiking. Her car was perfect tho. The trunk was empty and so big it fit without taking the wheels off.
