I’m looking for advice about a puncture I suffered this week.
I was riding my cyclocross bike for a road ride. I was using the cx bike as I was away and could only take one bike, I wasn’t sure what ride we’d do so I left gravel tyres on.
It has schwalbe g one all around 35mm gravel tyres (not tubeless, used with standard inner tubes) on hunt 4 season tubeless ready wheels. Tyres pumped that morning to 60 psi (tyre recommends 45-70 psi I think). I think it’s maybe the 3rd or 4th ride with these tyres.
My weight 75kg, bike weight around 10kg.
Around 60km in, all on ok tarmac, just cresting a small rise, not pushing hard at all. I heard a pop and felt the air leaking. The sidewall had a maybe 8mm tear.
Any idea why this would have happened? Was the tyre pressure too high?
Also interested in how people would repair this to get home? I cut the old tube and put part of it between the new tube and the tyre where it had punctured. I spent the 60km home waiting for it to go again - thankfully it
lasted till home.
