Bad Tire!

I can top that. The Bike Nazi posted about his tires and how they endured. The occasion? One of his tires had what he calls “carcass failure.”  Here’s the picture he posted.

Nazi's Tire

This is the Bike Nazi's bubbled tire. Compare it to mine below.

I can top the Nazi’s bulging tire. Click on the pictures for more from each story. For me, I’ve chosen to stay with high-end tires. Unless I get a cut, my Hardcase tires last from 3,000 to 5,000 miles. I usually wait until the rubber peels away from the core in patches before I change them.

The bubble appeared at high elevation, but disappeared when I returned to the lower start point.
