Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?


Glad ur OK, GH ...

I suppose it's possible u did a goof when you assembled the tire & tube, and aired it up...
But gosh, I bet you would at least have a suspicion if something were wrong in assembly.

Maybe the soap didn't allow the bead to grip the rim well??? or properly???

I've blown out tires before, sidewalls and tread, both... but I'm a tightwad, and at the speed I travel on a pedal-bike, it's not too much to worry about when one gives up.
I run used tires on my mab, but I definitely pay a bit more attention to my selection!

I'd like to try those hookworms... everyone seems to like 'em a lot.
My goal is cheap, reliable, personal transport, below the tax collector radar. Fun counts for a lot!
