@freeandinsecure:fairydust.spacePacman Pleb (They/Them)I wish you a good day too.05:41:48
@freeandinsecure:fairydust.spacePacman Pleb (They/Them)Also, I wonder why people at my college think cycling 17 miles is a lot. To me at least, it really isn't.05:45:26
@magdesign:tchncs.demagdesign👍05:47:08
@magdesign:tchncs.demagdesigndaily routines are good, especially commuting05:48:22
@freeandinsecure:fairydust.spacePacman Pleb (They/Them)They are good. Although, when I was in high school, I just cycled 5.6 miles in a day just for the commute. Some people found that to be a lot, but I told them that it was super short.05:51:07
@freeandinsecure:fairydust.spacePacman Pleb (They/Them)Like, that's a perfect range to do some cycling.05:51:23

Well, I never bought the tool. If I have these same issues again, I can probably be safe to assume it is a stretched chain.
To check the chain stretch you can also try and lift one of the connecting pins out of the front chainring. If you can raise it significantly, say the height of a tooth worth, then you should change your chain.

if you've seen our video, in senegal we had sometimes 5 flats a day... taking tyre off/on destroys the tape too 😇
How about puncture protection? I think shielding kits are available to fit within normal wheels as well.

we tried a lot and trust me, the only good solution is a good tire, and for this you just get joice between marathon and contact plus.... everything does not help, especially long term and with rolling quality....

@magdesign:tchncs.demagdesign... protectors, tubes filled with sealant, expensive tyres => all bullshit10:30:25
@bkil:matrix.orgbkilmHaven't tried it myself, but heard it from two people who had sworn to never get a tire without such protection. 🤷11:33:49

@inceptorannihilation:matrix.orgEntropicGenesis I think for puncture protection learning what works best for you and you local conditions in a big factor. All the options have trade offs between cost, serviceability, and protection. 21:35:25
@inceptorannihilation:matrix.orgEntropicGenesis Personally I had dozens of punctures in brand new Schwalbe Marathon tires with both rubber and TPU tubes on a couple hundred mile paved tour. Zero flats on Surely Extraterrestrial tires, tubeless with Orange Endurance sealant for ~1500 mile mixed surface tour. 21:40:49

Hey, bkil: the bot is double posting!
Sorry about that. The official RSS bot sometimes skipped entries, hence I added another one just in case. The issue is already under investigation: https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-hookshot/issues/844
