What happened to my tire?
I took my brand new road bike out for a ride on Sunday and while descending a hill at 38.5 mph, I hit a pot hole (not a huge one) in the asphalt. The CF fork soaked it up pretty well and my front wheel/tire was fine but the back tire immediately lost all pressure. The bike started to fish tail and I'm glad I didn't wipe out. The wheel looks fine, no broken spokes, and no obvious punctures in the rubber. When I returned home, I started to re-inflate the tire with a floor pump and it looks like it was taking the air. Should I remove the wheel and do a more thorough inspection of the wheel and the tube?
I was laying in bed staring at the stars wondering where the heck is my ceiling?
