- What's the largest thing that's stuck in your tyre?
NOt on my MTB but had the metal end of a Parker type pen go through the rear tyre on my R1 and took a perfect core of rubber with it and left a hole big enough to get my finger in. When I had the tyre changed the guy gave me back the end of the pen and the piece of rubber! Needless to say the tyre went down pretty much straight away – it was only about 500 miles old too and £130 quid for a new one as it couldn't be repaired.Posted 7 years agosimon_gSubscriber
This is mine, this morning:
…which managed to go straight in one sidewall and out of the other leaving at least an inch on either side, causing this to happen:
Shame I didn't take a pic of it in situ, but I wanted to make the bike rollable for the walk back home!
Anyone managed something bigger?Posted 7 years agoRealManMember
What the flip is that?!
Some sort of sealant crystal type thing. It was rubbery and a little bouncy.
Have a look
And they're conti rubber queens.Posted 7 years agoTinnersMember
I rode into a cow on the Garth mountain yesterday – does that count? (It was misty, I was going head down, hell for leather into a headwind….). Luckily, the cow was extremely placid and laid back about it and just carried on chewing (or at least it was when I looked back to see if it was chasing me).Posted 7 years agoshortcutSubscriber
Fully inflated 29er inner tube in mine at the moment!
Thats pretty large! Especially as it fills a 2.4" tyre. Rim and wheel are quite big too!
And I can't be bothered working out how many litres of air are in there but I am sure it must be well over 100 litres per tyre. 😀Posted 7 years ago
