Yesterday I was pumping up my rear tire. I pumped in 110lbs of pressure and leaned over to remove the pump head. The wire bead must not have been seated properly because the tube blew up. My left ear was inches away from the blowout and I experienced a bit of shell shock for 10 minutes. Now, about 20 hours later I still cannot hear much out of that ear. It feels and sounds like I have an ear plug in my left ear. I have never experienced this before and I am a little concerned that this may be permanent damage.
Can anyone weigh in?
