Blowout knocking my rim out of true???
So last night, was swapping tires on my Kona Jake from the stock Maxxis tires to a set of Kenda's for commuting. This was initiated because of a flat rear tire. A very slow leak, found it and patched the tube, but was just going to replace the tube and put the patched one in my backpack as a spare.
Anyway, front swap was easy, put the back one on, and checked to make sure there was no pinch or anything like that, and started to pump it back up. 40-60 PSI into it and the tube blows, like a gun shot. Pulled the tube and it's shredded. But before I took the wheel off I spun it and the rim is knocked way out of true now.
And it was true before ... it's only got about 200 miles on it so far.
This ever happen to any of you?
Will be taking it to the LBS today or tomorrow to get it trued
