    Mega Thorn

    Yeah so this dry riverbead where i usually ride was being flooded (no clue why, it didnt rain) but yeah there was like two feet of water in it when it is usually dry so i went a diffrent way through a palm oasis. As i came out i noticed the back tire was leaking so i stoped and spun it around looking for a thorn. I found one for sure. At first i though it was a nail but its a thorn actually. It went throught the tube and then out the other side in 6 diffrent places. (like as i was riding it would come out of the side then go back in as i kept roling. So 7 holes in one tube from one thorn. It was pretty crazy.

    LOL. Palm oasis. That's one hazard we just don't have on my local trails!

    I can imagine a crocodile tooth doing a number on a tire as well.........
