36" Tire BLOWOUT while riding.
I was just reading a thread about tires blowing, well mine popped while I was riding. I had just used a bike shops air hose and when I got on I knew there was too much pressure... I was just about to stop and let some air out when POP! To any bystanders it probably appeared to be some kind of assassination, as there was a loud BANG and then I hit the ground.
That was my first UPD off my new Nimbus, I did a nice tuck and roll and came out of it with a scrape on my arm. I'm not sure of my speed, I wasn't pushing hard but I was going pretty fast.
I'm looking now at UDC's 'Commuter 36-inch tube' for $38, anyone know if there's a better price? I also remember reading about people putting a 29" tube in their 36", can someone shed some light on that? I've got the airfoil double-walled rim.
