So far I have lost one wheel due to potholes in the City. Guess that ought to teach me not to draft cars anymore...
Come to think about it, how the blazes do you hit a 5" deep pothole and only hurt your nuts? The one I hit was less than 3" deep, but even then I almost fell (both of my water bottles got ejected). I don't see how you can hit a 5" deep pothole and not go over the bars...unless the hole is very small...in which case, it shouldn't affect the tire much...unless it's a kids size bike.
