From the "Its Cheery Friday thread"
Cheery at the start, then a decidedly non-cheery bit, finishing back to cheery
Decided to take advantage of the stunning weather and the reduction in restrictions to do a decent day ride on the gr***l bike. I'd been going for about 2 and half hours (nearly 40 miles....) when I became aware of the back tyre suddenly making a thumping noise every rev. On looking I discovered a substantial embolism on the tyre - an inch round bulge growing before my very eyes. Managed to let the air out of the valve before it totally let go and spray sealant all over me, took the trye off to discover that the carcass was totally delaminating with loose threads everywhere over nearly a third of the inside of the tyre.

Oh sh*t. Fortunately I had my full tyre first aid kit with me so made with two park tyre boots, all my motorcycle inner tube patches, and crucially an 8" section of self adhesive Kevlar puncture proof strip which I've carried for several years for this very eventuality. Through it all together and inflated to about 30psi then wobbled my way slowly home. The tube deflated about 7 miles from the house so I bunged the (second) spare in. This lasted until about 200m from the house....

Learning point? Don't buy vee tyres. Celebrated my ingenuity with a couple of pints of lager shandy in the blazing sunshine :-bd

Awww, bugger!
Unfortunately I've just fitted some of the vee cxv tyres to my stooge. Luckily they were ok on the 70km ride I did last night. Will definitely keep a close eye on them! Thanks.
