Windy rainstorms have knocked a bunch of twigs and branches down onto our trails lately, and one short sharp little twig stuck in my rear tire about 50 miles into what became my first metric of the year. I heard the "ding-ding-ding" sound first and wondered if I had broken a spoke. While coming to a stop, the "hssss..." announced what had really happened. Thankfully, the tube replacement was successful and I was on my way. I'm down to my last virgin 650B tube before needing to patch a couple, though.
