tire this entire trip. It was while biking around on Santa Cruz
streets. Lucky that city has many bike shops, including one
"Another Bike Shop."
I have a pump and spare tube, but wanted to
see if it
was time for a brand new tire. They said the old one had a few
miles, but might be a good idea to get new one. After Monterey
Then they discovered my break pads had almost worn their way through the metal of my back rim.
Having used this bike for more than one touring season, it was time for a new back wheel.
Except for that, my bike held up great. It's a mountain bike made by Giant. Price paid for bike, around $400.
