I haven't seen a CO2 cartridge in the wild, although I don't doubt slobs drop them. Slobs drop basically everything.


Long ago, I was on a ride with a few friends and one guy I barely knew.
That guy got a flat. He installed a new tube, then tossed the old tube
into the bushes.

I walked over and got the old tube back, stuffing it in my bike bag. He
said "Oh, do you want that? Do you take them home and patch them?"

He had absolutely no idea that tossing trash like that was not
admirable. Totally clueless.


My God! You ride on patched tires. That must be pretty dangerious
isn't it? But, of course, bicyclists wear crash helmets so I guess it
might be all right in an emergency.

Unless, one rides where there are mountain lions, I suppose. In that
case probably only new tires and tubes should be used :-)


I should think only slime filled or better, solid tyres, would be safe
enough in mountain lion territory. You can't be too careful!
