Thump in tire
There's another thread over there
about spokes and mystery in a thumping tire. Interesting.
Recently I had a different thump and now I'll report.
My kid and I were cruising at the beach on the MTB's and I kept feeling a thump as we rolled along. I stopped, felt the tire sidewalls, the pressure felt right enough, and we rolled on. Still a thump.
Stopped again and dang if I hadn't run over a frog.
The knobbies kind of gobbled the poor creature up.
I've almost hit a squirrel several times, been schat on by birds, chased by dogs and hit by a truck but but this was the first for a thumping frog.
You ever had a mysterious thump?
Thanks for letting me share... .
