hey Guys,
I left my bike sitting for a couple of days and when i went to go for a ride i discovered that the front tyre was completely flat. I got it towed to a shop and the puncture was plugged with one of those mushroom plugs they install from the inside of the tyre. the next day the tyre was down to 26psi from the recommended 38psi. I discovered another puncture and a piece of metal embedded on the tyre (possibly a 3rd puncutre if I take that out) my question is should I just plug up all these punctures or am I better off safety wise buying a new front tyre. i push my bike pretty hard and the last thing i want is the front tyre to blow out when i'm taking a fast corner!

I am one of the guys that advocates patching tires (sometimes). With that much hardware in a tire I would go ahead and replace it. Also, if you ever decide to patch a tire don't go with anything that has a plug.
