I assisted a gentleman on a new light blue kona single speed today. I saw him and a gentleman in a team oregon kit posted up on 20/NE Sandy. It looked like they were hard at work on a simple flat fix but I pulled over and asked if they needed any assistance. Seems that the rear brake pad was adjusted into the sidewall of the (3 day old!) tire and it blew out. I popped the provided boot in there and asked how much time he had, as there’s a bike shop like 10 blocks away. Guy said he was in a hurry to Broadway and I watched him pump up the tire, reassembled the bike and headed on his way. I handed him a card, told him the website, maybe 21st’ll get a call.
This morning I also asked a lady fixing her tire (flat?) if she needed any help, but to a negative response. I find people are more willing to let you help them if you actually stop.
