I have a working bicycle again! The Huffy I'd bought on Craigslist months ago had two problems: first, the seat was way too low, and the seatpost was only about 9 inches long so I couldn't adjust it. Second, the rear tire burst not long after I'd gotten it. So recently I bought a longer seatpost on Amazon for about $10, and today installed it and fixed the tube with duct tape. It seems to hold. I couldn't bring myself to buy a tube repair kit when I know the glue is some toxic crap and it's generally good for only one repair before the damned stuff dries up.
