Funstopper.

Cost of a nail: $.02
Cost of an Avon Venom 140/90-16: $200

(Prices approximated... I really have no idea what the monetary value of a single nail is, but I'm assuming that, at best, it's about 1/10,000 the cost of my fairly-new Avon)

Take it to Les Schwab, They should be able to patch it.

I've got this thing about tires.
I don't ride patched tires.
I don't ride bald tires.
I don't ride used tires.
I don't ride cheap tires.
If you've ever wrecked or lost a friend to shitty tires, you understand...
$200 for fresh rubber is pretty cheap when weighed against the possible alternatives.

Neato, a word of true wisdom from Stone.
Got weather cracks? Don't deal with it, plug'em, patch'em, fix'em....Got a hole sorry about your bad luck...get new rubber....Life is too short. Oh yeh and if you only paid $100 bucks for your bike. You still need to put $200 tires on it.
By the way Mezlers 15% of at GRIM thru the end o the month. We just got a new tire machine and balancer too....it's itchin to stretch some meats on your rims.
