One of my favorite trail side flats was a nail in the rear tire. I put the bike on the kick stand. Undid bead lock. removed one side of the tire. Removed offending nail from tire and pulled that section of the tube out far enough to patch. Stuffed tube back in. Reset bead, pumped and was on my way. Never had to remove rear wheel. It was awesome.

I've had one that was mosquito heaven and a total nightmare rear tire removal and patch that didn't hold, so I had to repeat process. That time I wish I had CO2.
