Likelihood is that one went and the rest were caused by running it flat (even for the short time bet we feeling it go and stopping) Posted 6 months ago lungeSubscriber Snakebites always meant tyre pressure too low didn’t it? If it was in a berm where the tyres loaded then that would make some sense too. Posted 6 months ago deadkennySubscriber STW response… tubeless! 😛 Posted 6 months ago oldnpastitMember I’m not an expert, but I’d say….your son is too awesome for his tyres! Either go tubeless, or get a new, less awesome son. Posted 6 months ago franksinatraSubscriber Either go tubeless, or get a new, less awesome son. Or run higher pressures (cheaper and easier option) Posted 6 months ago bobbybobbybMember On red 25 at swinley my lad suddenly looses all his air from the rear tyre. Found 6 pairs of holes, only had enough patches for 5 and no spare tube ! They are all over the tube, it happened on a berm. Never seen so many, wheel looks ok. Any ideas? Posted 6 months ago the00Member The first bite makes the tyre loose air, then you get the others before you can stop. One hit can result in 4 holes. Tubeless is a god send, but not bombproof. I’m now trying a Huck Norris tyre defender in the rear as well. Posted 6 months ago cookeaaSubscriber Go Tubeless, and when you do take some repair anchovies with you, spare tube is the absolute last resort now… Posted 6 months ago bobbybobbybMember I’ve not had that many in one go before, been considering tubeless for a while now so reckon the time has come. Thanks all. Posted 6 months ago Jon TaylorSubscriber Carry a spare tube, not just patches! /captain hindsight out! Posted 6 months ago NobeerinthefridgeSubscriber Sniper.
