About 15 miles in to my 100k ride yesterday, the rear tire went soft. I replaced the tube but couldn’t find the cause. Then, about 2 miles before the end of the ride, the rear tire started going soft again. It was losing air slowly enough for me to ride home, fortunately. When I inspected later at home, I found holes in both tubes in the same place. It then took a while, but I eventually discovered something very small and sharp poking into the tire tread. Kinda weird that it took roughly 3 hours for it to penetrate that second tube. I hope this isn’t a harbinger for a very flattish riding season.
