I'm currently passing through Anhui Province in China, and am at the foot of Huangshan.
I got a front pinch flat while riding downhill on a poor road yesterday, and crashed at 35km/h. We'd been climbing on very bad roads for two days, so I'd lowered my tire pressure. The hole in the ground looked small enough to safely ride over, but then I heard a hiss and immediately lost it. I have road rash all over my right side and a bruised eye. My helmet saved my head and my gloves saved my palms. My front rim (split) and tire (bead seperated) are trashed. My aerobar was bent. The hooks on my rear right pannier snapped off.
After the crash I got patched up at a rural hospital down the road, ziptied my broken pannier to my rack, and then started to push my bike through the 20km before the day's destination. After an hour of pushing the road improved, so I straightened most of the dents in my front rim with an adjustible wrench, filed off some of the burrs, and trued it up as best as I could. Then I stuck a bunch of grass in the tire, and limped the rest of the way into town.
I'm stuck here and am waiting for a new wheel to be posted in from Shanghai. Total loss of equipment is about $350, plus $50 for the new front wheel (I have a bad feeling about it), plus whatever my new spare tire will cost when I pick it up in the next largest city.
I'll save the gory photos for another day.
