The very same thing happened to me one day at the Piggly Wiggly in Sandfly, GA. Shazaam!
I lock the bike up and - right in my face (almost) - BlAAM! the rear tire explodes.
I haven't had an 'on-the-road' flat on this particular bike in a coon's age.
"No problem!" I think. I've got a nearly 19 year old tire pump I have never used. Guess what.
Riding out, commuting in my fashion, sorta JRA, about a mile out the rear, flub, flub, flub.
OK I've got my 2 CO2 cartridges and a new tube.
I'd never used a CO2 and a schrader valve and I wasted both of them. Yes I read the instructions when I got home and saw my Incredibly Stupid Blunder.
What I mean is I'm with you dude.
