    Last week I had to take the Madone to work instead of the new e-bike. When I went to leave, rear was flat. Walked to REI and repaired it, then went home.

    On Wednesday morning, Michele's rear wheel was flat. Goathead thorn. So she took her racey bike and asked me to finally get around to installing the Schwalbe Marathons, which I did last night.

    This morning, now her front tire was flat. I must have pinched the tube when I got lazy and used tire levers to get that last bit of the new tire on the rim. So, did an emergency repair on that this morning. Then I went to grab my e-bike, rear tire is flat. So I put that back and grabbed the Madone and its rear tire was flat.

    At least with the Madone I realized a couple of minutes later that it was flat because I'd used CO2 to refill it and that always leaks out faster than normal air. Or at least I hope that's what caused it, because it's sitting here next to me and I really hope will have inflated tires by the time I leave tonight.

    I would feel deflated after all that.

    So California (or the US?) doesn't have a law which makes it an offence to fail to identify the driver of a vehicle which has been involved in an accident?

    It would appear not, or at least if there is a law it isn't particularly effective or well known to law enforcement.

    Here's the recent incident where the police say they've identified the owner but he's not cooperating and they're looking for any witnesses who can help identify who was driving: https://abc7.com/owner-of-car-involv...-lapd/5662939/
