Default Nailed??

When I got home from the AR my rear tyre looked a bit melted, but I was tired and didn't take much notice. When I went to ride to work I discovered it was pretty much flat.

I took the wheel off this evening and discovered five small nails in the tyre, at least three of which had penetrated the casing. They're shown here on a 2p coin for scale.



One or two I might regard as misfortune, but five looks like someone has been putting nails in the road.

Obviously I've got no idea where I got them, but I'd suggest checking your tyres in case it was along the AR route.

Keith.

I'll check in a bit. That is very suspicious! Did you ride anywhere out of the ordinary in the car park or on the field?

Did you get in the way of any of the markers? Fallout did say he was going to drop nails in front of anyone who didn't immediately pull over. I'd go have a word with him if I were you.

Only small talk but the tyre guy I spoke to once said that one of the biggest cause of punctures was builders/ plumbers etc spilling screws n stuff when they're parked up and unloading outside houses??

That's really uninteresting isn't it? Sorry about that.

They look like little oval headed panel pins. If so then all five could have come from a spill like Laurie says.

It's the kinda thing people would be too lazy to scrabble about for.

Remember that fence post was down? I wonder if it came from fence repairs.

Not in the field of the pub, wrong type of nails.

Would be from close board fencing if anything.
