Hey guys, its my first month biking and I found myself going down a hill at around 40mph today on my hybrid. It got me thinking, what would happen if I hit a nail or screw on the front tire at that speed?
Do bike tires 'blow out' or are they generally slow leaks? Down a hill + blow out + 40mph sounds like it'd be a real bad day, but having never had a flat before, I'm just guessing.
My bike has 32mm wide tires at 110psi, if it matters.
