Into the Car, In a Big Way
Just about to take off for the wonderful 8-hr drive down to State College for the SSWC05. I’ve had some monster drives this summer, so this won’t be too bad, but it isn’t too good either.
Had a scary one yesterday: riding my town bike down into town to drop off a FedEx and my front tire exploded and blew off the rim. The tube wrapped around the hub and got tangled in the brake. So I tried to keep it upright as my front wheel skidded on the rim, all while I’m going about 30 MPH. Didn’t wreck, but it could have been bad. The front rim now has a big flat spot on it from where it ground down on the road. Still can’t figure out why the tire blew.
