Riding on a flat. How long before rim is damaged. ?
The other day i was riding on some really rough road.. Not sure how long i rode on a flat or maybe - a squishy tire.. I think no more than a couple hundred feet... .. The road was so rough ( pock marked.) who'd know the difference in the ride.. The ride was stable at least. It was the back tire..... The tires are 35 mm in width..
. Now I can't seem to not have flats.. Taking off the tires, I can see no visual damage to the rim.. Might some shard of metal be producing flats.? I've changed the tire for a brand new one..
