JerrySTL Posted April 17, 2019 Share #1 Posted April 17, 2019 Great temps but very windy so I took off work early in the hopes of getting in 30+ miles. Damned flat rear tire at around mile 12. Hole in tube near spokes holes but rim strip looked good. Patched it and pumped it up the best that I could with a mini-pump. Shortly afterwards I ran into some cycling buddies of mine. They were heading towards my car. I stopped at my car and used a floor pump. Funny thing was that I only had about 40 psi in the tire but I thought that I'd pumped it up more than that. Took off with my buddies and less than a mile later the tire started going flat again. Headed back to the car and home. I put on a new tire and tube when I got home. The tire had seen better days. I made sure that the rim tape was on correctly. Looking at the old tube, the hole was on the seam where the tube halves are joined. Maybe it was just ripping for some reason? Anyway only 18.34 miles at 13.9 mph avg. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
