Wrong valve, won't fit through the hole. Try to inflate it and McGeyver it, it also has a hole(I kept it next to my multi tool and it rubbed a hole in it). No problem, I have a patch kit. It is the sticker patches, and they are about as worthless as my wife in the kitchen. Needless to say, I had to walk the last 3 miles. Lesson learned, will update the flat kit.

 cold at the start -40Degrees. Ice puddles still on the trail. be careful on the fenceline singletrack- the mud is innocent looking but extremely slippery. It got me twice- front tire slid out and I went down. maybe i'll learn to slow down- I doubt it.also saw two coyotes.
