Forgot to post this one a week ago. Front tyre gradually went down on the way to work.
Pulled over and replaced the tube halfway to work.
Found nothing in the tyre and the rim tape is new.
Threw the tube when I got home. It was an old tube that had been patched twice already.
3 for the year.

June 15th - I could feel something stuck in my front tyre on every revolution. I'd picked up a double gee (emex australis) on the PSP. Brutal things they are:

November 4 - managed to pick up what looked to be half a staple in my rear tyre. I didn't feel it but someone in my group informed me so we stopped and I changed it out. Always fun having an audience waiting for you....

Both on my road bike with 25mm stock Giant P-SL1 tyres.


Only 2 this year, but I've only done 1900km this year. Still, that's the most I've ever done!
When you are driving your car, you are not stuck IN traffic - you ARE the traffic!!!
