…Tire Patch… September 9, 2012

So, I patched my tire up last week in order to get home from work after a rear flat tire.

A couple days later, I put a little more air in the tire and was getting ready to ride to work when it blew up on me. Absolutely and catastrophically blew up. Sounded like a gunshot. Not the kind of gunshot when someone on a nearby farm is out shooting crows, but the kind where you weren’t paying attention at the range and the guy next to you let a shot off with a 44 magnum.

Lesson? Go back to the good patches with the vulcanizing glue. Don’t use the cheap pre-glued patches.
