If you didn't see the entries about the stupid flat tire, click here . (Don't get me started.)
The main problem that messed up our putting the patched tube into the tire was something called a "rim-lock". I don't understand why or how, but that's what Cliff told me.
After our two stabs at fixing the flat, Cliff decided to join forces with Ryan's parents and get him on the road again. So Saturday they went to professionals and got a new tube put into the tire.
Ryan is on the road again. And again. And again.
