This is by far the strangest thing that has happened to me in the last 24 hours. I'm getting up out of bed to go to the bathroom. When I step into the hallway, I suddenly hear a loud "PSSSSHHHHHHH," the distinct sound of rapidly deflating tire.
I just bought my new bike, and it is sitting inside for now. The bike hasn't been used in over six hours, and it seems strange that the very little bit of road it's seen could give it a flat. It's not like this is a gradual slow leak; this is a very sudden burst of air. I don't think there was a popping noise.
Even the cat was looking at the bike wondering what was going on. I considered her biting the wheel or something (she's declawed), but there are no bite marks, and I doubt her little teeth could penetrate the tire. I even checked the locks on the doors and such.
I will check out the tire tomorrow to see exactly what type of hole it was. Any guesses to what could have happened? Is it a case of bike ninjas? Is it the CIA?
Anyone have any ideas? Do defective tubes do this?
