Yesterday, first day of school. Meaning I'm free to ride the bike without having to find a babysitter for my 4yo. Excited, I started pumping air on the tires. It's been so long that air pressure was down to 20psi. I got it to 100psi and starting dressing up. Amasingly I still fit on the lycra. And then it happened... prprpprprrrrrrrrrzzzzzzzzz the bike farted... front tire fully depleted.
After inspection it turns out there's a big crack. I need to replace it. It's kinda painful to buy road bike tires when your car's tires are cheaper than the most inexpensive 700x23c out there. :S
However, I'm extremely lucky. My road bike tires always fail @ home, moments BEFORE my epic rides, rather than 20mi away from home sharing the lane on busy street.
