- Road bike..6 punctures – one ride !!??
I’ve had the same with almost invisibly small shards of glass before. In at an angle so the point only becomes exposed when the tyre flexes under impact. They were a complete pisser to find, I basically ran my fingers over every cm of the inner and outer of the tyre with it flexed in all sorts of ways. Still took two or three runs before I found them all. I now try to avoid riding near breakers’ yards.Posted 4 years agobrackMember
Rode out with mates today..and blimey had 6 yes 6 punctures on a 40 mile loop.
New tubes each time, correct tube size
Pressures – 110 – 110
5 to rear 1 to front
No thorns/ flints found each time
Most of the holes appear to be more of a slit rather than a puncture, and I’d say 4 out of the 6 are all on the inside of the tube.
Bad luck ??
I doubt it but really cannot find a cause.Posted 4 years agosoulboyMember
If there’s no protruding spoke end on the inside or a piece of flint/glass/thorn embedded in the casing, you could be trapping the tube with the tyre bead when you’re installing it. Check that you’re not pinching it when you’re seating the tyre (especially if you’re using tyre levers) and check the bead/rim interface for trapped inner tube before inflation.Posted 4 years ago
