FlatsPosted on December 23rd, 2011 No comments
Some days it is just not obvious what caused my flat. I usually look round the area, run my fingers over the area, put in a spare tube and get going again.
If I get a 2nd flat in the same area of the tube as before I will do a really close exam and don’t give up until I figure it out. This time I had an almost invisible, very tiny, metal whisker sticking up inside the tire. It was invisible on the inside and outside. I could feel it with my index finger when the tire was flexed even when I could not see it.
I was able to get it out with a pair of tweezers and a magnifying glass. This the tiniest thing I have ever pulled out of my tires.
