First ride on the new wheels and everything was going great till about mile 34. Descending down Westlake Blvd at about 26mph, my tire desides to come off the rim. I was almots able to save it but ended up going down.
Lesson learned here. The wheels came to me with the tires already installed. I was going to have my mechanic (Win Allen) take them off and reinstall them but he had to go away for the weekend. So I decided to ride them as is. Bad mistake! I will never, ever trust someone to glue my tires that I don’t know. My crash today could have been horrible given the steepness of the canyon, cars, cliffs, whatever. Luckily I came out of it ok and will be back to training in a few minutes as I’m heading out for a run.
Be safe out there….close call today…yeesh!
